  1. who is representing Montgomery county?

  2. You will remain unrepresented in Montgomery County. Rep Brandon Creighton is a jerk and could care less about TDCJ employees. He is unopposed in this race in District 16. Just leave the ballot a "no vote" on this section. Just vote against this guy in the General Election if there is a Dem or a LIB on the ballot. In the next primary race in two years, maybe he will have a candidate correctional employees can support if someone sees he is unpopular enough in the general election.

    1. thank you good to know>

  3. Could we actually start getting 12 hrs sick time a month instead of 8, since we work 12 hr shifts
