December 2012 - Message from Carlos
It's time to mark your calendar for my 16th Annual District Christmas Party and Toy Drive — an opportunity for me — and you — to give something back to our communities during the holiday season.

I'm expecting up to 800 people from across Senate District 19 for this year's bash, which will be held Friday, Dec. 7, from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. at VFW Post 9186, 650 VFW Blvd. in San Antonio.

Santa will be on hand, and so will your friends and neighbors as we enjoy each other's company with music, door prizes, and a free holiday meal, while extending a helping hand to our neighbors.

Remember to wear something festive and bring an unwrapped toy appropriate for infants or children through age 12.

The gifts we collect will be distributed by Senator Santa to hospitals and child care facilities in Del Rio, Eagle Pass, Lytle, and Uvalde. Playing Senator Santa is the most fun I ever have as a senator. Every moment spent with these children is rewarded with a smile.

The Christmas season is the most special time of the year, and it can be even more special if you'll help me make sure that a child in need won't go without a gift this year.

For more information call 210-932-2568 or visit

Have a merry Christmas and a happy New Year!

Sen. Uresti's office seeks interns, Senate seeks pages

Want to get in on the action at the 83rd Texas Legislature next year? Sen. Uresti's office is looking for interns who would like to work at the Capitol during the spring semester, from January to June.

Capitol internships provide a great opportunity to get involved in the legislative process and learn how government works. If you can't live in Austin, internships are also available for Sen. Uresti's district office in San Antonio, where you will help the staff serve District 19 constituents and perform other duties.

Undergraduates interested in working as a Capitol intern can apply by sending a resume via email to the senator's chief of staff, Jason Hassay, at or call 512-463-0119. For internships at the district office, contact Bryant Villa at, 210-932-2568.

The Texas Senate is also looking for young people between the ages of 6 and 18 to work as pages during the legislative session. Duties include working the Senate floor during sessions, making deliveries for Senate offices and assisting offices with assignments, such as copying, faxing, filing, and other chores. For more information on this program visit or call the Senate Sergeant at Arms Office, 512-463-0200.

CPS Energy Targets “Most Wanted” to Stop Fraud and Energy Crimes

CPS Energy is going after a list of most wanted criminals in an effort to protect its customers, infrastructure, and services. In partnership with news media, CPS Energy launched a bilingual public awareness campaign to fight utility imposters, copper theft and theft of electric and natural gas services. The campaign includes posters, flyers, and public service radio, TV, and print ads.

“This campaign is intended to take awareness of these crimes to a new level,” Maria Koudouris, senior vice president of customer service and gas delivery, said in a press release. “We want these felons - the Imposter, Energy Thief, and Copper Thief - to know that the community is on to them and their chances of getting caught have increased dramatically.”

Koudouris said there are several ways to tell the difference between CPS Energy employees and frauds. First and foremost, if someone contacts you asking for a payment, they are not a real employee. Customers, whether residential or commercial, must always contact the utility to make a payment.

Also, legitimate utility employees also will never call customers to request any credit card or banking information; or ask to enter a house unless the customer initiates the request for service or has received prior notification.
