The City of Lambertville announced today that it received a nearly perfect, 98% on the 2017 Human Rights Campaign Municipal Equality Index(MEI). "The MEI examines how inclusive municipal laws, policies and services are of LGBTQ people who live and work there. Cities are rated based on non-discrimination laws, the municipality as an employer, municipal services, law enforcement and the city leadership's public position on equality

Former Mayor Dave Del Vecchio said, “I know that our diversity enriches our community and makes it stronger. That is why we work hard to ensure that all of our residents, include our LGBTQ residents, are treated equally and with respect. I am proud to receive these high marks from the Human Rights Campaign.”

Lambertville received the second highest score in New Jersey. Members of the LGBTQ community participate actively in City Government, serving on the City Council and on a broad array of City Boards and Commissions.
