Does candidate Mouton want to cut city employee TMRS match to help fund his desire for an opportunity center. Some city employees have heard that he will go from 2 for 1 city match to 1 for 1 city match. city employees sould not buy into his comment that he will not do this, once elected it will be too late. He is in denial on his facebook page, so much for employees being the back bone of the city. Get ready for reduction in employee benefits. Look at how much he is spending in his campaign. Massive signs and expenses to get elected, something else must be driving him-perhaps its your TMRS account?

From Jerry Mouton for Mayor face book page:
I have No plans to cut wages or benefits for our City Employees.

Can you believe Mr. Mouton? I suggest that you cannot believe him especially since he made the motion to adopt on first and final reading ordinance 3527 that amended the sick leave incentive pay for employees.

Now if that is not a cut in benefits I don't know what is. But, more cuts for city employee benefits will likely happen if he is elected Mayor. Do you feel lucky? Will you take that chance with your benefits?

Check out the minutes if you don't believe he made the motion to cut your benefits. Sept. 18, 2012, Page 6,#19.

I have a feeling that the majority of city employees remember that benefit cut. Go by and thank Mr. Mouton and tell him he doesn't have your vote! His business is in HOUSTON.

City employees are spoiled brats crying for more milk from the dried tit. Most people don't get half the benefits you people get. If you don't like it, either work somewhere else or do what Mouton has done: be self-employed and work for yourselves!

Mouton is an angel on earth,anointed by the mayor! He is simply seeking prosperity for all ! When will the common rabble see the truth of it?

I guess we can do without garbage pick up and take it out and burn it like they used to do in the country. Firemen and police are city employees....are they spoiled? I have had a whole crew of city workers in my back yard at 3am replacing a broken water line. I have lived in Deer Park for 45 years and I would not trade the city services for anything. The only thing wrong with Deer Park is people like you.

Well said, no matter the time they come out to fix broken water lines so we have water.

Wow! ONLY 1:1, instead of 2:1. I'm assuming that means they currently match 200% of an employee's contribution to their retirement fund. That's government work for ya. Most private sector employers don't match more than 1:1 up to a certain percentage, usually 3-5% of gross income.

How about this: Deer Park does a poll and asks all of it's citizens what their employer contributes to their retirement fund. Then Deer Park matches the median. How's that sound? Then if you guys (I assume you're a city employee) want a larger contribution from the city, you have to put it to a vote from the citizens.

. Thank you, it is. Nice to know that people appreciate city services. When you flush your toilet does the poop go somewhere? When you turn on your faucet, can you drink safe water? Are there dead animals up and down your street or is the road kill picked up. When you call PD or EMS are they quick to reply? Does are parks dept. offer fun affordable activities for your family? Get a life or move to your dream city where you get treated like a king for minimum wage, oh wait, that place doesn't exist. If you hate DP then move!

Jerry Mouton is a politician and politicians say what people want to hear. He can post it on Facebook, Twitter ot shout it from the rooftops...with his voting record...the proof is in the pudding. Once he is elected...his story will change.

Doesn't any change have to be voted upon by the entire City Council? I don't think the mayor has the power to just "make a change". Maybe I'm wrong.

FYI: Federal Employees that have Federal Retirement get NO matching funds.

No one said you had to chose the private sector to work in. I had that choice and chose to apply for the city, because of the benefits. I could leave at any time and work in the private sector, your free to apply for the city as well.

There are some that choose to work north of 225 at the plants, they are their for the money and benefits. Some chose corporate jobs, others chose to police officers, each of us (with some trained skills) has options where they choose to work. Given two options, wouldn't anyone choose the career which will support their families the most, and have the best benefits? Most cities match 2 to 1.

Enjoy it while U can because when I get in, it will have to go, no more than 1 for 1 or maybe none. Get ready to pay more for your health care too, I think I'll put u on the Obama health care plan, that will be cheaper for the city and we'll use the savings for trips. Man I love it in Austin and DC, all expenses paid. Steak dinners, plenty of time with my spouse since they can go on the city buck, don't leave home without them.

And the people who provide these services are volunteers? Oh, no they're paid, by people who get up and go to work 365 days a year just like the guy who scrapes up the dead animals. The difference is that someone is paying someone else. I'll let you figure out who's paying and who's being paid. And by no means should you think the services aren't appreciated, but since they're paid for, they're kind of expected.
