AUSTIN, TX—Senator Carlos Uresti and newly elected State Representative Tomas Uresti took their respective oaths of office Tuesday at the Texas State Capitol. The 140-day legislative session runs through May 29th. The brothers are the first siblings in Texas to serve concurrently representing House and Senate districts since 1940.
“This is an exciting day for our family and for our supporters. Our parents instilled in us the importance of serving our community, and the opportunity to do so together at the Capitol is an honor for our family. Now that we’re sworn in, I think I can speak for both of us and say that it’s time to get to work.” said Senator Carlos Uresti.
