DAVID VAN OS FILES SWORN AFFIDAVIT OF HIS INTENTIONS TO BLOCK THE TRANS-TEXAS CORRIDOR IF ELECTED ATTORNEY GENERAL
If elected to serve as Attorney General of Texas, I solemnly promise that I will use every legal means available to me by that office to bring to a halt and/or invalidate the unconstitutional and illegal project known as the "Trans-Texas Corridor." ~Affidavit for Public Records, sworn to and filed by David Van Os
At his courthouse appearances today, Attorney General Candidate David Van Os unveiled a notarized Affidavit for Public Record, through which he is placing in public records sworn promises to his fellow Texans that he intends to fulfill if he is elected Attorney General in the November general elections.
Van Os' affidavit includes his promise to use all legal means available to him to block the Trans-Texas Corridor. Other pledges contained in the Affidavit include promises to uphold all the enumerated rights in the Bill of Rights and to enforce the Texas Constitutional ban on monopolies.
Van Os is conducting a whistlestop tour of all 254 county courthouses in Texas. He speaks to the public at each courthouse about his vision for the Attorney General's office, takes questions, and meets & greets local townspeople and courthouse officials. Today he is stopping at the courthouses in Smith, Upshur, Wood, Van Zandt and Kaufman Counties.
As of the drafting of this Press Release, Van Os had filed his Affidavit with the County Clerks in Smith and Wood Counties. He will be presenting it for filing at every courthouse. Van Os said, "I'm placing these promises in affidavit form, under oath, and filing them in public records so my fellow Texans will know that when I say I'm going to fight the Trans-Texas Corridor, when I say I'm going to fight the corporate monopoly robber barons, and when I say I'm going to defend the Constitutional rights and liberties of the people, I'm not just flapping my gums. I mean exactly what I say."
