Julian Castro was ceremoniously sworn in as Housing and Urban Development secretary Monday afternoon by Vice President Joe Biden, coming just a few weeks after his official swearing in to office.

This ceremony completes the formalities of Castro's transition from mayor of San Antonio to HUD Secretary.

The 39-year-old was tapped by President Obama to lead HUD back in May to replace out going Secretary Shaun Donovan. Castro sailed through the confirmation process on Capitol Hill with relative ease and was officially confirmed by the Senate on July 9.
