New Hartford, NY (WIBX) - One Oneida County Legislator is attempting to introduce the nation's motto to the county chambers.

David Gordon says his resolution to add the motto "In God We Trust" to the Legislative Chambers would make Oneida County the first in New York to do so.

Gordon also says, "Oneida County has adopted many laws and resolutions that have helped shape the State of New York and set historic precedents."

"In God We Trust" has been on U.S. currency since 1864 and became our nation's motto in 1956.
