West Springfield joined the growing number of communities recognizing pride month on behalf of its lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender citizens.
Mayor William Reichelt issued a pride month proclamation on behalf of the LGBTQ community at the entrance to the West Springfield town hall.
“This is the first for us to recognize pride month,” Mayor Reichelt told 22News. “I’m very happy that we are. It needs to be a welcoming community.”
“We’re proud to join other communities in making pride month an important event in the town of West Springfield.”
