(Amended by Ordinance Nos. 139501 and 168343, effective January 7, 1995.) The
form of oath to be taken by appointed City officials shall be substantially as
I, (name), do solemnly affirm I will support the Constitutions of the United
States and of the State of Oregon, the Charter of the City of Portland and its
laws; I will faithfully, honestly and ethically perform my duties as (office)
during my continuance therein.
The wording of the oath may vary, as officials are sworn according to the
ceremonies of their own religion or in such manner as each deems binding on his
or her conscience.
The oath may be administered by the Auditor, deputy auditor, a notary public,
or a magistrate of any court of record in the United States, within their
respective jurisdictions. Whenever the oath is administered by a person other
than the Auditor or deputy, the credentials of the person administering the oath
shall appear thereon, and the oath shall be sent immediately to the Auditor, who
shall attest to receipt of the oath.
