May 6 designated as Law Day

PROCLAMATION from Fred Camillo, First Selectman 

WHEREAS, The Rule of Law is a fundamental concept undergirding justice, freedom, and representative government; and

WHEREAS, The Rule has been a guiding ideal of constitutional government that can be traced through history from various systems of law, through the Magna Carta and the United States

Constitution; and

WHEREASThe United States was founded on the principle that voluntary adherence to the Rule of Law expands, rather than limits, the opportunities for freedom; and

WHEREAS, The Rule of Law rests upon the idea that no person is so important as to be above the law and conversely no person is so insignificant to be beneath the law; and

WHEREAS, The principle that no person is above the law means that there must be limits on government and that government officials must be held accountable for their actions; and

WHEREAS, The separation of powers among branches of the government are essential to preserving the Rule of Law; and

WHEREAS, An independent judiciary is essential to a free society and administration of laws; 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 Rule of Law requires an educated citizenry that understands law and demonstrates engaged citizenship; and

WHEREAS, The theme for Law Day 2022 is “Toward a More Perfect Union: The Constitution in Times of Change.” The goal of this theme is to emphasize how the Constitution is a dynamic document, that not only outlines a blueprint for the government but also establishes mechanisms for change.


NOW, THEREFORE, l, Fred Camillo, FIRST SELECTMAN OF THE TOWN OF GREENWICH, do
hereby proclaim May 6, 2022 as

Law Day

in the Town of Greenwich and urge residents to observe this day by deepening their understanding of the Rule of Law and dedicating themselves to Advancing the Rule of Law NOW to strengthen our democracy, defend liberty, and pursue justice.
