For those that don't believe there is a link between Mayor Castro and Greenstar, their own website points out the link between the two!

Good job of not connecting Greenstar and Castro. It just mentions an initiative created by the Mayor.

Castro has as much connection with Greenstar as former Mayor Garza has with Toyota.

Now THAT'S a telling Web page. Castro is obviously indelibly linked to Greenstar, and to what extent might be a little more than scary. And to think that it has been suggested to keep politics out of this story. I don't think Castro got that memo!

MOD Note: The previous "politics" reference that was removed was to National politics which is Off-Topic for this thread and the SA Forum. Local SA politics are certainly allowed in both this thread and the SA Forum.

Perhaps Greenstar is taking a note from Lamar Advertising's playbook and will become a heavy supporter of the future political aspirations of our mayor.
