San Carlos city officials celebrated Pride Month Friday, June 21, with a rainbow flag raising ceremony and community event. Approximately 150 people attended and enjoyed a splashy rainbow-themed chalk art display gracing the steps of City Hall. On hand were, from left, City Council members Sara McDowell, Adam Rak, Vice Mayor Ron Collins, out Councilwoman Laura Parmer-Lohan, San Mateo County Pride Center director Lisa Putkey, former Santa Clara County Supervisor Ken Yeager, Mayor Mark Olbert, and San Mateo County Supervisor Dave Pine. The council issued three proclamations: one to Yeager for his long-standing commitment to inclusion; and one each to Putkey and Pine for getting the Pride center up and running two years ago.
