Julian Castro on Principles & Values

 

 


Make America smartest, healthiest, fairest & most prosperous

The former housing and urban development secretary said his goal is to make the US the smartest, healthiest, fairest and most prosperous nation on earth. Maybe it's his response to "make America great again", although it will be considerably harder to print on a hat.

1977: As kids, engaged in San Antonio city politics In 1977, San Antonio let voters decide if the city should change from an at-large system of elections to single-member districts. The referendum passed[.] This immediately diversified the face of public representation in San Antonio. Four years later, From an early age, Joaquin and I were taught the importance of political engagement, and we attended rallies and were even pictured in some of the campaign literature. By the age of eight, I lost count of how many times I heard my mother tell me, "As a citizen, you need to participate in the democratic process. I something is wrong you can change it. Your efforts may pay off in the long run, even if you don't get your way right now."
