Hon. Julián Castro issued the following statement: I’m humbled and excited to return home to San Antonio for the 2016 Texas Democratic Convention.
“We know that the strength of Texas is in its families, our shared dreams, and our grit to get the job done. Texans think big, as big as our great state. That is why we cannot accept when families are being left behind. There is no reason for that. Together, we must invest in an infrastructure of opportunity for all. I look forward to joining y’all in San Antonio, next month, to celebrate our Texas values.”

2016 Texas Democratic Convention Chair Joaquín Castro issued the following statement: “It is an honor to welcome my brother Julián to the Texas Democratic Convention in nuestro San Antonio. But this convention is not about us, it’s about all of you, and the direction we all want to take Texas. Together, Democrats will build a platform for our families, be inspired by the rising stars of our party, and chart the future of the Texas Democratic Party. This is an election year and there is so much at stake. There are no passengers at this convention. We are all crew. It is time to roll up our sleeves and get to work.”
