As part of Constitution Week, Tutunjian urges "all citizens to reaffirm the ideals the framers of the Constitution had in 1787 by protecting the freedoms granted to us by this document."
In a ceremony that looks to have taken place in his office, Tutunjian was joined by members of the Daughters of the American Revolution in issuing the proclamation.

Whereas, The Constitution of the United States of America remains the guardian of our liberties as it embodies the principles of limited government; and
Whereas, this year marks the two hundred twenty third anniversary of the framing of the Constitution of the United States of America by the Constitutional Convention; and
Whereas, it is fitting and proper to afford official recognition to this magnificent document and reflect on the privileges it bestowson all citizens; and
Whereas, Public Law 915 guarantees the issuing of a proclamation each year by the President of the United States of America designating September 17th through 23rd as Constitution Week.
Now, Therefore, I, the Honorable Harry J. Tutunjian, by virtue of the authority vested in me as Mayor of the City of Troy, County of Rensselaer, in the State of New York do hereby proclaim the week of September 17th through 23rd as “CONSTITUTION WEEK” in the City of Troy and urge all citizens to reaffirm the ideals the framers of the Constitution had in 1787 by protecting the freedoms granted to us by this document.
In Witness, Whereof, I have set my hand and caused the seal of the City of Troy to be affixed this sixteenth day of September in the year two thousand and ten.
