Castro Matriarch Looks Ahead

By Bill O'Neil

In a mother's own words--a one-time San Antonio community activist finds hope for tomorrow in the accomplishments of her two sons. 

That woman is Rosie Castro--whose twin sons have grown up to become the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, and a rising star in the halls of Congress. 

"I expect that Julian will do some very good things at HUD, and I know Joaquin is working very diligently as a Congressperson" Castro told 550 KTSA News. She said she can see some improvements have been made over the years--but is quick to add the recent unrest in Ferguson, Missouri shows there is still work that needs to be done. 

"I think that we still need to have the discussions about how we as people treat each other--and what the biases are that are still left" Castro said.
