County Board of Commissioners recognizes Constitution Day. 

HART — The Oceana County Board of Commissioners unanimously passed a resolution during its regular meeting last week to recognize Sept. 17 as the 232nd anniversary of the ratification of the United States Constitution. The resolution was presented by Commissioner Andrew Sebolt and reads: 

Whereas, the American Revolution created an independent nation, the United States, and secured the first system of self‐government as a model for the world; and 

Whereas, this system of self-government produced the tenets of equal justice, limited government and Rule of Law that exists in the United States today; and 

Whereas, the 39 delegates who signed the United States Constitution at the Constitutional Convention forever changed the course of human history and established the essential guide of compromise; and

Whereas, the Constitution of the United States protects the unalienable rights of every citizen of the United States, secures “ the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity,” and sets the standard of governance for the world; and 

Whereas, September 17, 2019 marks the 232nd anniversary of the signing of the United States Constitution which is the supreme law of the land and the document by which We the People of this land self-govern.

Now, therefore be it resolved, that the Oceana County Board of Commissioners hereby commemorates the 232nd anniversary of the signing of the United States Constitution on September 17, 2019 and recognizes the sacrifices made by the people who made that signing possible.
