State Senator Martin Sandoval joined San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro, a rising star in the Democratic Party, to celebrate the Hispanic business community in St. Louis.

“The great change and growth that Mayor Castro has achieved in San Antonio is very inspiring,” Sandoval said.  “This growth, as well as the engagement of the Hispanic community, is something that we are currently striving to achieve in the Midwest region”.

The 39-year-old San Antonio native, Mayor Julián Castro is one of the youngest mayors running a major American city. First elected on May 9, 2009, Mayor Castro won re-election in 2011 with nearly 82 percent of the vote, making him the fifth Hispanic mayor of San Antonio.

He delivered the Keynote Address at the 2012 Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina.
