It is my number one commitment to continue to serve the people of Alvin if re-elected to a full second term as your at-large councilmember. I bring forth a passion for Alvin that is unrivaled along with a desire to see our city stand out as the jewel that I know it is.
One way to make this jewel shine is to continue to focus my efforts on managing our overall development. Alvin is a unique community and, as we develop, we must not only embrace our history but plan for a greater future. Alvin has a rich and strong local heritage. I am only one of a family whose legacy has been a part of this city for many generations. Together, we can continue to build upon that heritage for future generations by devoting ourselves to a mission of continued development within Alvin to allow for exciting and high quality opportunities for our citizens.
However, with that must come an additional focus: infrastructure. As we continue to grow and develop, we must plan for success. In doing so, we must first assess and upgrade our existing infrastructure. Then, we must assure continued progress by identifying areas of potential future growth by expanding and developing our systems wherever feasible.
Our jewel of a city, like any gemstone no matter how complex or developed, must be routinely polished to maintain its brilliance. Just as one would polish a gem, we must polish Alvin by focusing on its beautification. Through planned beautification efforts, we allow those who are not a part of this amazing city to see for themselves the love, dedication, and commitment we have for our community.
I am excited for what the future holds for Alvin. I look forward to serving the city and its people as your City Councilmember. I know that if we partner together, we can bring about positive growth to our city. Thank you for the opportunity to serve you and help Alvin reach even greater heights.
Hon. Joel Castro
