I will bear true faith and allegiance to the Constitution and will uphold and enforce all laws, ordinances, and precepts endowed therein. I recognize that this awesome responsibility must be faced with great humbleness and awareness of my own weaknesses. I therefore will not be ashamed to say "I know not," nor will I fail to call in my colleagues when the skills of another are needed. I will remember that there is an art to governance as well as leadership, and that warmth, sympathy, and understanding outweigh tyranny and corruption. I will apply, for the benefit of the United Federation, all measures that are required, avoiding those twin traps of apathy and unrighteous dominion. So help me God.”
