David Van Os to Filibuster for Independence

David Van Os is the definition of a populist candidate and again he shows us why.

Texas Attorney General Candidate David Van Os will conduct a 24-hour "Filibuster for Independence" on the south steps of the Texas Capitol in Austin, beginning Friday March 3 at 6 p.m. and concluding at 6 p.m. on Saturday March 4.

All Democratic candidates running for federal and state offices across Texas have been invited to participate in the Filibuster for brief periods. A full roster of participants will be released soon.

The public is invited to attend, observe, and listen.

The filibuster actually starts on March 3rd. It coincides with Texas Independence day. If I may, here's the press release statement:

In 1836 the founders of Texas declared and won their independence from dictatorship and entered the community of nations.

In our day the people of Texas must again win their independence from the modern dictatorship of corruption, cronyism, and corporate government.

Please join me as I honor the 170th anniversary of the Texas Declaration of Independence by conducting a 24-hour Filibuster for Independence at the seat of Texas government on the State Capitol grounds.

The Filibuster for Independence will commence at 6:00 p.m. on Friday,
March 3 and will continue until 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 4.

The Filibuster for Independence will be conducted on the South Steps or Grounds of the State Capitol Building, 11th Street at Congress Avenue, Austin.

The Capitol Building and Grounds belong to the People, and public discourse on issues of public concern is their highest and greatest use.

All candidates for public office are invited to relieve me temporarily in speaking duties during the Filibuster, but are requested to remain on topic.

The public is invited to attend, observe, and listen.

Representatives of the press are welcome to attend.

David Van Os
Democratic Candidate for Texas Attorney General
