AT THE STATE HOUSE
By Senator Brian A. Joyce
"I, Brian A. Joyce, do solemnly swear that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and will support the Constitution thereof. So help me God."
"I, Brian A. Joyce, do solemnly swear and affirm, that I will faithfully and impartially discharge and perform all duties incumbent on me as State Senator according to the best of my abilities and understanding, agreeably, to the rule and regulation of the Constitution, and the laws of this Commonwealth. So help me God."
"I, Brian A. Joyce, do solemnly swear that I will support the Constitution of the United States."
With this oath, administered by Governor Argeo Paul Cellucci on January 3, 2001, I began another term in the Senate representing Avon, Canton, Dorchester, Hyde Park, Jamaica Plain, Mattapan, Milton, Randolph and Roslindale. I am very grateful for this opportunity you have given me, and I will once again use this column to keep you informed of significant and local matters addressed in the Massachusetts Legislature.
