Mayor Proclaims Constitution Week in Shoreline

Sunday, September 18, 2016
Mayor Chris Roberts has proclaimed September 17 through 23, 2016 as Constitution Week in the City of Shoreline. 

Constitution Week is a time for all citizens to recognize and honor the Constitution of the United States and to reflect on the obligations we have as citizens to ensure the principles contained in it endure.

September 17, 2016 marked the 229th anniversary of the signing of the Constitution at the Constitutional Convention in 1787.

Since that time, the Constitution has become a symbol to people around the world of how to create a government that best represents the will of its citizens while also protecting equal rights for all.

On Friday, September 16, Mayor Roberts visited Shorewood High School to present the proclamation to students. He encouraged them to learn about the Constitution and the importance of active citizenship.

Mayor Roberts encourages everyone to take a moment to read the Constitution during Constitution Week.
