Yes, Mayor Castro's move east will lead to change at City Hall and throughout the political system. We will have a new mayor, or two, within the space of a year. Seats on the council will become available. And politicians previously seen strolling the halls of the statehouse may swap places with those working the corridors of City Hall.
