If you need extra time to digest the bird, or risk a little extra indigestion wondering how many times they will violate the City Charter and Connecticut Constitution, the newly elected City Council, school board and city sheriffs will receive the oath of office on Sunday, 5 p.m. at City Hall Council Chambers, 45 Lyon Terrace. Mayor Bill Finch will deliver remarks with musical selections from the Roosevelt School Choir.
Actually, it’s always a fun experience for the office holders as well as for their friends and family. In case you’re wondering, here’s the official oath of office:
DO YOU, ________________ HAVING BEEN ELECTED TO THE OFFICE OF ________________ OF THE CITY OF BRIDGEPORT, SOLEMNLY SWEAR THAT YOU WILL FAITHFULLY AND IMPARTIALLY EXECUTE THE DUTIES OF SAID OFFICE ACCORDING TO THE LAW, AND TO THE BEST OF YOUR SKILL, WISDOM, JUDGMENT AND ABILITY; AND FURTHER, THAT YOU WILL SUPPORT THE CONSTITUTION OF THE STATE OF CONNECTICUT SO LONG AS YOU CONTINUE IN SAID OFFICE, SO HELP YOU GOD?
