Smith seeks Texas U.S. Senate seat

ORANGE — David W. Smith is seeking the office of Texas U.S. Senate in 2014 currently held by Senator John Cornyn.

Smith is running as an Independent.

Smith, 1984 graduate of LC-M High School, has lived in Mauriceville most of his life and a veteran.

“I served in the Air Force and in the Texas Army National Guard,” Smith said in an interview. “I was deployed to Kosovo and served there all of 2006.”

Smith worked for 20 years in the medical field as a Phlebotomist and worked in the local hospitals and is now a small business owner. He started New Century Dome Builder in 2008.

“After witnessing a blatant disregard of our Constitution in the Senate and our Government I found the overwhelming desire to take a stand and offer to represent the citizens of Texas,” Smith said. “I did take Political Science classes while serving in Kosovo and have sought out my personal study of the Constitution and Bill of Rights. What I find is, our current Government is in a stark contrast to what our Founding Fathers established for this Nation. When our government ignores the Law of the Land we have a problem.”

Smith also said he believes in the Constitution and Bill of Rights and swore an oath to "protect and defend the Constitution from all enemies foreign and domestic.

“I continue in that oath in serving as a 2nd Amendment leader in the Texas State Militia,” Smith said. “I believe, if you believe in what the 2nd Amendment stands for you are a part of a civilian defense force and you are the Militia. This is were I stand out among those who say they support the 2nd Amendment. I not only support it, I am the militia. This is what we all should understand. Each and every person age 17-70 is qualified to volunteer to organize and work with and in cooperation with Local Law Enforcement.”

Smith said it is his commitment to serve in the office as Texas U.S. Senate as a Senator should.

“I want to be an ambassador of the people in Washington and truly be your voice standing with you and not over you,” Smith said. “I look forward to serving Texas.”
