It is the BONDS Stupid! The key to compliance of the Oath is the bonds!!!!

Thank you Randy Due.

This is how I am told the system works.  I am not an attorney and this is not considered as legal advice.  This is educational in nature only. – Arnie

Every Elected Official MUST be BONDED!!!!  The purpose of the bond is to ensure the official adheres to his Oath of Office!  Failure to honor his oath the elected official becomes guilty of violating his fiduciary responsibilities.
