I haven't officially decided who to support for Mayor, but I have decided who not to support for Mayor and that would be Mr. Mouton.

Its amazing that one of Mr. Mouton's plans call for attracting new restaurants and businesses. While that sounds great I would remind the citizens that his own company is not located in Deer Park! Rather its located in Houston the last time I checked so will he follow his plan and move his business to Deer Park since that is one of his plans to attract new businesses?

Reviewing what has occurred over the past several years I would say businesses have already been attracted to Deer Park, its a shame that his has not moved to Deer Park. Talk is cheap especially when he doesn't walk the walk, just saying.

Perhaps Mr. Mouton needs to read the business beat to understand what is going on in Deer park.
Year-End Wrap-Up: In 2012, Deer Park issued 54 permits for new single-family homes. The City welcomed 148 new businesses (including 3 corporate headquarters) which brought approximately 900 new employees to our city. There were 17 new commercial buildings constructed in 2012.

His FB says "Come by and visit with me about Deer Park, a Community of Opportunity". If this is his theme he should rethink it as he is not following it when it comes his business. The theme could be more along the line of Opportunity Center, a center that helps the poor get a hand up. There is nothing brilliant about the theme that is jumping out at me yet.

We know how one landscaper from Deer Park operated. Does Mouton have any illegals working for him? Seems to be a norm for that type of business.

How about the property where he stores those mowers, edgers & weedeater. If it was located in DP, then he would be paying taxes on those assets every year. Instead, he's paying those taxes to Houston.

Why should you get more than most private sector companies offer their employees. I certainly don't support "Mr. Moutin," but I don't think a 2:1 match for city employees is fair to the taxpayers. If you need more going into your 401K, then contribute more of your paycheck.

his tax dollars give me more things to do in Houston than Deer Park has to offer(a paved road to work)...

It's funny to see all these out-of-towners from Baytown and Houston so worried about Deer Park. And signing in with different names so it looks like different people posting.
move here, then we "might" care what you think about our city and it's politics.

I don't know who I will support either, but if where someone's business is located is all you can find fault with - you're really reaching.

Who else is running anyway? Maybe we can anonymously find silly things to criticize them for as well.

If Mouton is elected, does anyone know how much this Community of Opportunity will cost us?

You need to get a copy of the Deer Park Final Report that the Rotary had at one time. I looked up several of the community opportunity centers that it listed and I remember that it was very expensive.

Perhaps Mr. Mouton can produce a printed copy of that report... or even put it on line so the citizens can be better informed as to what his intentions are. I also remember a number of our city leaders were at the meeting where it was presented, Mr. Patterson was there as I remember, perhaps he can inform you as well.

Looking back I believe Mr. Boles and Mr. Mouton were the lead promoters of the program.

This is one of the community centers that was in the above mentioned report. I'll see if I can find the their budget.

You could also contact councilwoman Cobb, this is part of a message she sent me and several others.
"I have also attached a copy of the feasibility study presented to the public on Thursday, July 8, 2010. This company looked at several assistance centers across the nation to see what others have done. Some programs have been in existence for 40+ years, others relatively new, some programs are on a large scale, others rather small. This was done to give us an idea of what other communities have done not to say that this is what the Deer Park program is looking to accomplish or duplicate."

I tried that link today, but it didn't open. Perhaps she can put it on the Rotary web page and or the city web page so the citizens can be well informed about Mr. Mouton's intentions should he get elected. As I remember the report was about 40 pages. Shock and awe is all I can say, get ready for all taxes to drastically increase if Mr. Mouton gets elected.

Remember the words "some programs are on a large scale", best describes Mr. Mouton's plans IMO.
