The official nod hasn’t been given just yet but it appears the San Antonio City Council has found their new temporary representative for District 7: the Alamo City’s very own Rosie Castro. An announcement was made to the public following a handful of interviews at the Wednesday, March 1, City Council meeting.
One more round of interviews will commence for Castro, the lone remaining candidate, on Thursday, March 2. If selected by the San Antonio City Council, the longtime civil rights activist would immediately take her seat as District 7 councilwoman where she would finish the last three months of former Councilwoman Ana Sandoval’s term. Castro and the other three applicants chose not to run in upcoming May 6 elections.
