Mayoral Proclamation - Law Day - 05.01.2016


  • WHEREAS, This country was founded on the principle that voluntary adherence to the rule of law expands, rather than limits, the opportunities for freedom; and

  • WHEREAS, A viable democracy requires understanding of the nature and basis of our freedoms and recognition of the individual responsibilities which those freedoms impose; and

  • WHEREAS, The Law Day 2016 theme of “Miranda: More Than Words” marking the nation’s 50th anniversary of the best-known U.S. Supreme Court Case; Miranda v. Arizona, stands for the procedural protections afforded to all by the U.S. Constitution; that our rights are safeguarded by the courts; and why preservation of these principles is essential to our liberty.

  • NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, That I, Timothy J. Mahoney, Mayor of the City of Fargo, do hereby proclaim Friday, May 1, 2016 as Law Day in the City of Fargo, North Dakota and urge the citizens, schools, businesses, legal professionals and media of Fargo to use this occasion to preserve and strengthen the rule of law.
