Thursday night in Zavalla some residents confronted TXU representatives before the meeting even started. Inside tensions grew as some elderly residents said they had to sacrifice buying medication and food just to pay their power bills. Karen Swenson attended Thursday night's meeting. "Clearly the individuals in Zavalla are struggling. They are having really high bills and they are trying to figure out how they are going to pay bills that are absorbent," says Karen Swensen.
Karen knows help is available. She works for Greater East Texas Community Action an East Texas Agency providing energy assistance to qualified families. Karen says no family should sacrifice buying food or medicine to pay a high power bill and this agency is here to help. "To any individual struggling please please give us a call," says Swensen.
