Village Council Mission

The Athenian Oath, over 2,000 years old, is still a cornerstone that guides Winnetka’s public leaders, under a timeless code of civic responsibility. The Oath is prominently displayed on the north wall of the Village Hall Council Chambers as a reminder of the duties involved in governance. The quote below is the “Oath of Youths Coming of Age at Athens,” as quoted in Joannes Stobeaus’ Anthology:

“We will never bring disgrace to this our city, by any act of dishonesty or cowardice, nor ever desert our suffering comrades in the ranks; we will fight for the ideals and sacred things of the city, both alone and with many; we will revere and obey the city’s laws and do our best to incite a like respect in those above us who are prone to annul or set them at naught; we will strive unceasingly to quicken the public’s sense of civic duty; thus in all these ways we will transmit this city not only not less, but greater, and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”
