Based upon the state and federal Constitutions, members of city council, if you live within an incorporated area, or the county commissioners, if you reside in an unincorporated area, essentially take the same oath to protect and defend the Constitution as other elected officials.
Consequently, as the trustees of the public trust to which they were elected, they are as public servants, obligated to provide you, the constituent, a republic form of government, and provide you the rights protected by the Constitutions, as defined, “All people are by nature free and independent and have inalienable rights. Among these are enjoying and defending life and liberty; acquiring, possessing, and protecting property; and pursuing and obtaining safety, happiness, and privacy.” ― Article I, Section 1.
As fiduciaries, they bear the same responsibilities to protect the public interest and act to secure the public safety within their jurisdiction. In the event they fail to carry out this responsibility in accordance with trust law, they can become guilty of malfeasance, failure to honor their oath, committing criminal acts under the color of law or their office and even dereliction of duty. Most of these crimes are federal crimes and are addressed under the US Criminal code, Title 18.
To institute measures to assert your rights of control and compliance over these public servants, these employees, the following process is suggested for your consideration:
Step 1 – Request/Demand credentials from city council members
Step 2 – Receive credentials and inspect for correctness. Print the following on back of oath . Oath of office is a quid pro quo contract
Step 3 – Return oath establishing the contract and appoint them as trustee.
Step 4 – File complaint(s) as per US Title 18 USC § 4 – Misprision of felony
Whoever, having knowledge of the actual commission of a felony cognizable by a court of the United States, conceals and does not as soon as possible make known the same to some judge or other person in civil or military authority under the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.
It then becomes the obligation of the civil authority to process the charges to the appropriate authority to investigate and process further.
Should the elected officials fail in their responsibility to provide you with the Constitutional protections in accordance to their charter, you have the right to sue the city to dissolve the city corporation.
