“As one of the most diverse cities in the United States, I believe is important to welcome and celebrate our spirit of inclusivity, and to embrace opportunities to recognize our rich diversity,” said Mayor Cutter. “When I was first elected to public office over 20 years ago, I ran on a platform that included addressing LGBTQ issues in our schools. Since that time, it is encouraging to see the social progress that has been made, and our ability to celebrate together as a community of kindness.”
Due to current public health orders that remain in effect, attendees are welcome to view the flag raising ceremony in front of City Hall while maintaining social distance. The ceremony and flying flag will also be visible from East 14th street and passing motorists. Photos will be shared on social media. The public is also invited to view the reading and adoption of the proclamation by logging into the City Council’s online meeting on June 7th at 6:30 p.m. A link to the Council meeting can be found on the City Council agenda page or by clicking on the Zoom meeting link.
