E. In addition to any other form of oath or affirmation specifically provided by law for an officer or employee, before any officer or employee enters upon the duties of the office or employment, the officer or employee shall take and subscribe the following oath or affirmation:
State of Arizona, County of ______________ I, _____________________
(type or print name)
do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution and laws of the State of Arizona, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same and defend them against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and that I will faithfully and impartially discharge the duties of the office of ______________________ (name of office) ________________________ according to the best of my ability, so help me God (or so I do affirm).
(signature of officer or employee)
F. For the purposes of this section, “officer or employee” means any person elected, appointed or employed, either on a part-time or full-time basis, by this state or any of its political subdivisions or any county, city, town, municipal corporation, school district, public educational institution or any board, commission or agency of any county, city, town, municipal corporation, school district or public educational institution.

I have come to the conclusion that the City of Surprise does not want to improve the O.T.S. Every one that I have talked to agrees, saying that they don’t want any part of Surprise because of it’s attitude.
The city has eliminated most of the infill incentives that were in place, for that reason investor’s like myself, walk away from the idea of investing in the O.T.S.
