The office of citizen

The phrase "office of citizen" or "assume the office of citizen" has been attributed to Thomas Jefferson, but we have not found it in any of his writings. The earliest occurrence (with attribution to Jefferson) that we know of in print is in the National Council for the Social Studies' Expectations of Excellence: Curriculum Standards for Social Studies.[1]
