Rep. Miller Statement on Constitution Day

Sep 17, 2013

WASHINGTON – U.S. Representative Candice Miller (MI-10) today made the following statement recognizing Constitution Day.  On this day in 1787, the final draft of our nation’s Constitution was signed by 39 delegates, then sent to the states for ratification and went into effect on June 21, 1788 when New Hampshire became the ninth state to ratify the Constitution.  Miller said:

“On this day in 1787, the signers of the U.S. Constitution set the course of our nation’s future – a future of liberty for every man.  With the signing of America’s ruling document, our nation would ensure that its citizens will always stand together, side-by-side and will never let tyranny reign.  This document solidified America’s founding truths that all men are created equal and endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights including life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  Our Constitution stands 226 years later, and together, every American celebrates the freedoms it guarantees.  I wish every citizen of our great nation a Happy Constitution Day.”
