Castro confirmed as new HUD secretary
WASHINGTON (7/10/14)--The U.S. Senate confirmed Julian Castro to become the new head of the Department of Housing and Urban Development Thursday. Castro, the mayor of San Antonio, was confirmed by a vote of 71-26.
 
Castro, 39, was nominated in May by President Barack Obama, who called Castro a "proven leader, a champion for safe, affordable housing and strong, sustainable neighborhoods" in a statement released after the confirmation hearing.
 
"I know that together with the dedicated professionals at HUD, Julian will help build on the progress we've made battling back from the Great Recession--rebuilding our housing market, reducing homelessness among veterans, and connecting neighborhoods with good schools and good jobs that help our citizens succeed," Obama said.
 
Castro has been mayor of San Antonio since 2009. His twin brother, Joaquin, is a Democratic congressman from Texas, representing the state's 20th District.
