Oaths of Office

Municipal judges may be elected or appointed, and municipal court clerks may be elected, appointed, or hired. All appointed and elected officials must have copies of an anti-bribery statement and an oath of office on file with their city's secretary. Download sample oaths here.


The city secretary is required to file a report of a vacancy or appointment of a municipal judge or mayor or clerk of the court with the Office of Court Administration. That form can be downloaded here.
