Castro congratulated the city of San Antonio on securing funding for our federal courthouse, which will ultimately benefit our entire community. He also thanked the San Antonio Chamber of Commerce's Immediate Past Chairman, Henry Cisneros for his term and continued contributions to San Antonio.
After watching the presentations and overviews from our issues teams, Castro reminded the crowd that, "The squeaky wheel gets the grease, but it is not enough to just squeak. You have to be smart and you have to be prepared. And, that's what I know you are here." He also reminded everyone on the importance of being up to date on the issues, focused on what San Antonio needs to grow and prosper, ready to make the case and follow up.
In closing, Castro expressed his pride in what is happening in San Antonio and added, "I hope the city will continue to invest in people and brainpower to ensure we have what is necessary to prosper in this 21st century global economy."
