Since the election, Castro can be seen everywhere. He’s not just a city councilman, but a very active member of the community. Whether he’s dressing as Santa Claus for a children’s bicycle giveaway at the American Legion, ringing the Salvation Army bell in front of Walmart during Christmas time or braving the dunking booth at National Oak Park to support the Archangels of Texas’ first annual Hometown Social, it’s hard to avoid this dedicated Alvinite...

Castro said he wants the city to be prepared for coming population growth.
"Alvin will see a lot of changes in the next 10 years," he said. "Surrounding cities have had trouble with infrastructure and unexpected population growth. Our council is already allocating funds to improve water and sewage, but we also need to work on roads and services to accommodate the population to come. We need to get ready for it and not fall behind."
"Through Christ you can do anything," he said. "Where there's a will, there's a way. It is important for me to be able to listen to people and be there for the citizens. They can call, text or email me, and I will be sure to get in contact with them as soon as possible. There will be no issue with me being accessible."

Castro is currently one of the youngest Texans elected to public office.
“I hope it sends a message to our youth that they can get involved now,” he said. “Don’t let anyone tell you that you’re too young to make a difference in your community.”
“I had people asking me to go for it and encouraging me to pursue the office and my dream,” he said. “They thought I would do well on the council seat. I had an overwhelming amount of support.”
He has several goals he hopes to accomplish while on council.
“I wanted to beautify the city, improve the infrastructure and control the development while being fiscally responsible,” he said. “I want us to focus on small businesses and improve conditions for economic development. I want to be able to listen to the citizens and work for them. This is what they elected me to do.”
