Candidate Statement: Liz Lempert

Dear Fellow Democrats,


Since being elected mayor in 2012, I have worked together with the Princeton Council, municipal staff, and community members to make consolidation a success, and to focus our newly unified government around the progressive values of openness, sustainability, and inclusion. I am writing to ask you for your support this Tuesday and in November.

Candidate Statement: Jenny Crumiller

Dear PCDO Members and Friends,


I am seeking re-election to Princeton Council for many of the same reasons I was motivated to run the first time:  Princeton is a beautiful town with a strong sense of community. My goal is to maintain Princeton as a diverse community—welcoming to young families as it was welcoming to me—and a town that is hospitable to those who want to age in place. I want to preserve its character, and I want it to be well run.
