Don't Miss the Exciting Finish of the Whistlestop Tour Oct. 16-20
Down to only five counties to go, David and Rachel Van Os will finish their whistlestop tour of all 254 Texas county courthouses with stops Monday-Friday this week at the Tarrant (Oct. 16), Dallas (Oct. 17), Harris (Oct. 18), Bexar (Oct. 19), and Travis County (Oct. 20) courthouses. Please see the schedule here for details about the courthouse stops and the after-gatherings.
David and Rachel set out last April on their mission to travel personally to each of the 254 counties of the great state of Texas. As of October 13 they had completed their 249th county courthouse stop. This week's stops at Tarrant through Travis Counties will make the 250th through the 254th and final stops.
David has said that he and Rachel decided to do this "not so much as a campaign strategy but as a moral statement that government belongs to all the people of Texas, therefore the political process has to reach all the people in every part of Texas." David has also stated that, "Rural Texans have been pushed to the bottom of the ladder for way too long. Government is supposed to belong to all the people, not just the urban elite power brokers."
David and Rachel are telling friends the tour has been one of the greatest experiences of both of their lives. Rachel says,
"We bonded with wonderful new friends who met us with incredible hospitality everywhere we went. We learned first-hand about problems and issues our fellow Texans are facing in every part of Texas. We saw the breathtaking landscapes of our beautiful Texas everywhere. And as the tour progressed, David felt more and more touched by the fundamental greatness of this state and goodness of its people. He became more and more determined to do everything in his power as the people's lawyer to protect his fellow Texans and this wondrous land from the political and economic greed and arrogance that are running them over. He loves our state more than ever and will be a better Attorney General for having taken this journey."
