Online Complaints of PRIDE ID Card Receive Comments from Mayor Senter

February 13, 2020

PRIDE ID CardPlymouth Mayor Mark Senter took a few minutes during the “Privilege of the Floor” portion of the Common Council meeting Monday to address the comments on social media concerning the PRIDE ID Cards.

Senter said, “Our ID program that was passed two weeks ago took a bashing on social media.  All I have to say is not one single person came and spoke against it at our meetings.  They can bash all they want to, but if you’re going to bash come to our meeting and bash.”

During the “What’s Your Opinion Show” on WTCA Tuesday morning Mayor Senter said Local News Now was the main source where people were “out of their minds complaining about this situation.”  The Mayor said, “I did not hear or see one single human being speaking bravely on Facebook at our meetings to complain and to come forward and speak out-loud to our faces.”

The PRIDE (Plymouth Resident Identification Endorsement) ID Cards allows city residents to apply for an ID card that proves they live in the City of Plymouth.  Three specific types of documentation are required to qualify for the ID card.   It’s not a given that someone will be issued a PRIDE card.  Once the proper documentation is certified as official and current an application for the ID card will be approved.   The PRIDE card is not recognized as a government issued ID card so it can’t be used to obtain a driver’s license or register to vote.
