Somersworth flies rainbow flag in support of Orlando victims
SOMERSWORTH — Mayor Dana Hilliard held a brief ceremony at City Hall Monday to honor the victims of the Orlando massacre, hoisting a rainbow flag underneath the American flag in front of City Hall.
“As an American I mourn the loss of my fellow citizens,” Hilliard said. “As a member of the LBGTQ community I will continue to honor each of their lives by dedicating mine towards social justice. Like members of my community, I believe in this nation and its dream.”
Joining Hilliard in the ceremony was his partner Sean Peschel, several city and school officials, and some residents.
