Retirement Already A Bonanza Waterfall For MWD Employees

victoria

Teri Sforza has produced another fine Watchdog post over at the Register about the gravy train that already awaits MWD employees in retirement, including a list of over 40 of these watercrats who pull down over $100K a year in pension payements click here . The former top dog who retired in 1993 gets almost $225K per year and has received over $3.5 million since he stopped clocking in. Sweet. For him.

grrrrrr
grrrrrr

If that weren’t bad enough, now MWD wants to raise their pension formula even more. A few days ago we threw down the gauntlet to our City Council to be accountable for the upcoming vote by their chosen MWD representative, Jim Blake. Well, now we do it again. The vote is next week and we will be reporting back to the friends.

And remember. MWD cost increases are passed directly on to us. On top of that, in Fullerton 10% of gross water revenue (from your water bill) goes directly into the General Fund. And that’s a hidden tax increase, folks.

Here’s the MWD $100,000 club. If you know anyone on the list make sure he/she thanks the water rate payer for their largess:

  1. Sean, will you tolerate this? Let’s hope not. You and your partners appointed Jim Blake. Free advice: set him straight ASAP. If not he’d better be gone by the end of the week.

  2. It is inconceivable that MWD employees would get such a gift from the public. They are among the highest paid govmnt employees, our water supply is restricted and rates are raised. No battling from these MWD “experts” to secure desalinitation facilities or to lobby for more water now supporting smelt. Let’s not reward meritless work with the only answer, always, to raise rates.

  3. Wake up people!

    First, no elected or appointed official should EVER spike anyone’s pension period. Second, no elected or appointed official should EVER spike anyone’s pensions period. Third, do I need to repeat myself?

    1. Welcome to FFFF, RFIW.

      Ask yourself this question: how come Fullerton’s “conservatives” like Ackerman and Royce keep promoting RINOs like Jones and Bankhead who spike city employee pensions in a heartbeat if they could get away with it?

  4. So you’re saying that the city coffers plump every time my water rate is hiked? How did I miss that? No wonder these dopes keep voting in the rate-hikers. Everyone wins except us stupid taxpayers.
