Ridgewood NJ, on Saturday Ridgewood hosted dignitaries from all over the state of New Jersey of every political persuasion for the Ridgewood Pride Month Flag Raising.
Among those in attendance were NJ District 40 representatives Kristin Corrado (R), Kevin J. Rooney (R), Christopher DePhillips (R).
Congressional District 5 Rep Josh Gottheimer (D) spoke and who would later say on twitter, ‘Honored to be a part of the Ridgewood Pride Ceremony and flag raising today as we kick off #PrideMonth! We celebrate all the champions who have helped raise this rainbow flag here and across the nation. 🏳️🌈
It’s a vital symbol for us all that hate and intolerance have no place in our communities. As our #LGBTQ community continues to face discrimination and inequality, our work to combat this is far from over.Bergen County Executive Jim Tedesco said on Facebook ;'” I am proud that we can all celebrate our diverse communities in Bergen County!”.
