Van Os Tour Hit 231st County on September 29
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE :: October 3, 2006
DAVID VAN OS CONTINUES STATEWIDE WHISTLESTOP TOUR
Tour Hit 231st County on September 29
"Government belongs to all the people of Texas; therefore the political process must include all the people." ~ David Van Os
David Van Os continues this week on his whistlestop tour to meet with the public at all 254 county courthouses in Texas. Last week Van Os addressed the public at 20 county courthouses in West Texas, with Lubbock County on Friday afternoon being the 231st courthouse stop in his statewide trek. At each courthouse, Van Os files a written oath of his convictions and intentions with the County Clerk for recording in the public records.
Van Os states: "Government is supposed to belong to all the people, therefore the political process has to include all the people, in every county of our state. That's why I'm spending from April to October personally visiting and speaking to the public at every one of the 254 county courthouses in Texas.
"Under the Texas Constitution the people are entitled to a state attorney general who serves the public interest instead of the special interests. The Texas Attorney General is the one state officer who under our Constitution is most especially responsible to protect the people as citizens, consumers, taxpayers, and private property owners. With his millions of dollars of campaign contributions from the wealthy and the privileged, incumbent Greg Abbott wants to purchase another four years to continue protecting the toll-road profiteers, the insurance companies, the oil companies, and corrupt politicians from the people. This year the voters have a real choice for real change, a fighting lawyer who will protect the people from the political insiders and robber barons instead of the other way around. When your lawyer has a conflict of interest you should fire him, and it's time for the people of Texas to fire Greg Abbott.
"I'm tired of politicians talking out of both sides of their mouths. I am filing my pledges and intentions in writing under oath, in public records, because my fellow Texans have a right to know exactly what I intend to do on their behalf.
"It takes a lot more money to sell lies than it does to spread truth. I'll rely on the wisdom of the people in contrast to Greg Abbott's millions of dollars worth of slick television commercials. The people of Texas need a real lawyer to work for them for a change, not a slick public relations hound."
