Current Occupation: Construction | Birthdate: 08/26/1966
My name is David W. Smith , and I'm from Mauriceville, in Orange County, Texas. I am self-employed with my own construction business. I build Monolithic Domes and spray poly foam insulation also. I started New Century Dome Builder, LLC in 2008 and after 20 years serving in the health care community as a phlebotomy lab technician I went full time into running my business.
As for my private life, I've been happily married for 24 years and have two adult children. I served in the State Military Forces the Texas Army National Guard between 2004-2007 and was deployed to Kosovo, KFOR7 in 2006 and I was awarded the Army Good Conduct Medal. I was likewise awarded the National Defense Service Medal, Global War on Terrorism Service Medal,, Kosovo Campaign Medal, Army Service Ribbon, Overseas Service Ribbon, Armed Forces Reserve Medal W/M Device and trained as a Crisis Responder. I was discharged with an Honorable Discharge.
While stationed in Kosovo I furthered my education by taking courses in Political Science. In 2015 I was elected of Commander of the American Legion Lloyd Grubbs Post and continue to serve the veterans in Orange County as best I can. I now volunteer for Orange County Reserve Militia, since 2014, a branch of the Texas State Military Forces, known as the Golden Triangle Militia Orange County. I likewise serve as Commander at the pleasure of the volunteers who elected me to the position. I recently obtained my HAM Radio Technicians License to better serve the County http://www.statutes.legis.state.tx.us/Docs/GV/htm/GV.431.htm
I have been actively committed to ensure our County elected officials are abiding by constitutional standards by attending the County Commissioners Courts since 2014. What I have found during that time is a resistance by some to abide by the Texas Law and uphold statutes meant to fill the gaps of security in Orange County. Many other counties in Texas have also neglected this law. I have lead the effort to spread information to the residents of our County about these neglected statutes. There are some Counties who are now beginning to encourage the relationship and working with the volunteers of the Reserve Militia. This in part due to a network of committed citizens educating the people in Counties all over Texas.
When elected as County Treasurer I will assure transparency and guard the people's money to assure it is properly handled in a way that truly represents the people's will.

In your own words, please describe the meaning of Article 1 Section 1 of the Texas Constitution.
We control our own destiny. The Federal Constitution guarantees we as a State have the right to our own form of republican government. If the Federal Government was operating withing the boundaries of the Constitution we would have what Article 1 Section one says. Freedom
In your own words, please describe the meaning of Article 1 Section 2 of the Texas Constitution.
We the people of the State have the power to assure we keep or restore our State government to assure the freedom of the people at all times and the Federal Government can not interfere.
In your own words, please describe the meaning of the 10th Amendment to the United States Constitution.
It is the limitation placed upon the Federal Government to assure they do not usurper their authority. The Federal Government was granted certain responsibilities and can also have those responsibilities removed. An area the Federal Government does not abide by.
Why should supporters of the Texas Nationalist Movement support your candidacy?
I believe the freest form of government is when the people are allowed to choose how to live their life without interference of Government. The people who run for office are servants of the people and not the master of the people. As a true supporter of a republican form of government I give and will keep my oath to maintain it and assure transparency of the office. I will assure true accounting of the peoples money. We need servants who are unwavering in character who will not turn a blind eye to corruption.
