Don’t expect him to start belting out ‘Heart of Glass,’ but you can call Mayor Castro ‘Blondie,’ at least for now.
The mayor dyed his hair blonde on Saturday to celebrate the Lanier Voks basketball team making it to the playoffs.
“It looks silly, I know,” Castro said. “But I hope our city’s young folks learn two things from this. First, always keep your word. Second, you have an entire community of San Antonians who care about you and will always support your success on the court and in the classroom. Go Voks!
Castro told 1200 WOAI news that even though blondes are said to have more fun, he hoped to achieve a full return to his normal hair color as soon as possible.
