San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro will give the keynote address at the AHAA (Association of Hispanic Advertising Agencies) 2013 conference April 30 in McLean, Va. The mayor gained national attention in 2012 when he delivered the keynote address at the Democratic National Convention. Castro will discuss the newfound clout of Hispanic voters and how they influence government policy and the marketplace, according to a news release from AHAA: The Voice of Hispanic Marketing. Representatives from the Democratic and Republican parties will then engage in a point-counterpoint session regarding strategies for winning over Hispanic voters. The youngest mayor of a major American City, Castro, 37, was first elected mayor in 2009, and made Time magazine’s 40 Under 40 list the next year. His efforts at making San Antonio a leader in the new energy economy helped spur the Milken Institute to rank San Antonio as the nation’s top-performing local economy. Among his accomplishments as mayor are Café College, offering guidance for test preparation, financial aid and college admissions to any student in the San Antonio region, and revitalizing the city’s underserved East Side with the Decade of Downtown initiative, according to his website. Castro is known to be quick on his feet. When House Judiciary Committee chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., referred to a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants as “extreme,” Castro quipped, “I don’t see that as an extreme option. The extreme would be open borders.”

Prominent Hispanics from across the United States, including Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, Texas Rep. Charles A. González and actress Eva Longoria, are among a group of 35 individuals who will advise Barack Obama in his bid for re-election in November, the president’s campaign team said Wednesday in a statement.

This group of national “co-chairs” of Obama’s 2012 campaign will “serve as ambassadors for the president, advise the campaign on key issues, and help engage and mobilize voters in all 50 states,” the statement said.

They include leading Latinos such as the mayor of San Antonio, Julian Castro; the executive secretary-treasurer of the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor, AFL-CIO, Maria Elena Durazo; Texas Congressman Charles A. González; the U.S. transportation secretary from 1993-1997 and U.S. energy secretary from 1997-1998, Federico Peña; and actress Eva Longoria.

Other co-chairs of the president’s re-election campaign will include Bill Daley, who served as Obama’s chief of staff from January 2011 to January 2012; Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel; and author and president of the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation, Caroline Kennedy.

“The president’s national co-chairs will be tremendous assets on the ground as we build the biggest grassroots campaign in history,” Obama’s campaign manager, Jim Messina, said in the statement.

“They each share the president’s vision for a future where every American can have a fair shot at success, where hard work pays off and responsibility is rewarded.”

The co-chairs “are proud of the president’s record and leadership in rebuilding the economy after the worst economic crisis in generations,” the campaign statement said.
