Default Farewell

I have decided to retire on September 30th from TDCJ after 31 years of service. I have been in the commissary department since 1993 and have seen so many positive changes during my tenure here, and have enjoyed finding new ways to make the commissary better.

I joined this forum back in 2011 to assist with the roll out of the new eCommDirect program. The eComm project was a bumpy ride to say the least to get it up and running, but I like a challenge. I admire the dedication and determination of the members of this group for pushing through and being persistent in getting answers. I wish all of you the best and look forward to a little down time.

Stay safe in these crazy Covid times!

Eric

...and a big Thank You for all the questions you've answered about TDCJ Commissary, also for the support & understanding of others that you have shown PTO members these last nine years.

But, uh, just because you're retiring from TDCJ it doesn't means that you're retiring from PTO, right? We'll need periodic updates, at least, of your new adventures Enjoy!!

Much thanks for your input and support. Good luck with road ahead. And as those doing time inside right now like to say and often do, "commissary is neccessary ".

Thanks for the kind words. I have coined a phrase with my management for this past year - "Commissary doesn't matter, until it matters". This past year has been a challenge with the pandemic and our own transportation issues. I think commissary will be in good hands after I leave.

Best of luck to you as well.

Eric
