Poulsbo May and June Community News



During May and June the City received several messages from Poulsbo area residents regarding Pride in Poulsbo. Most who objected cited "religious grounds" and fears related to LGBTQI people. There were also positive emails and city officials stood firm in their support for the LGBTQI community. In fact, after 29 (of 32) Pride flags were vandalized, two large Pride flags were raised in front of Poulsbo City Hall. We thank city officials for their rejection of homo- and transphobia and their commitment to equality.


Led by Councilor Britt Livdahl, Council votes to display PRIDE flags along Front Street during Pride month! A handful of Poulsbo residents turned up at a council meeting to object, but a majority of councilors voted to raise the flags - thank you!


Urgent comments made by local residents to council  regarding serious ongoing issues with racism, bullying, threats of violence, child suicides and suicide attempts in NKSD, and the lack of meaningful response from school officials, including board members and Superintendent Evans. Note: NKSD board liaison to Poulsbo City Council Rick Eckert has never mentioned these issues to council during his weekly reports - why?!
