New Citizens to Take Oath in UlsterCounty
Ulster County Clerk Nina Postupack announces that a naturalization ceremony will take place at the historic Ulster County Courthouse on Wall Street in Kingston on Friday, December 16th at 11:00 a.m.
Approximately 23 new citizens will take their Oaths of Allegiance accepting the responsibilities of an American, while also gaining the rights and privileges afforded to most Americans by birth. “I am honored to be a part of such a special ceremony,” states Ulster County Clerk Nina Postupack. “It’s a moving experience to watch as people are finally able to realize their dream of becoming a U.S. citizen.”
Several local elected officials and organizations will be helping to welcome the new citizens by awarding them with congratulatory certificates and providing them with useful resources and materials.
Presiding over the ceremony will be the Honorable Kevin R. Bryant, Justice of the Supreme Court. Judge Bryant will be the keynote speaker welcoming our 23 participants as newly naturalized American Citizens.
