Candidate Statement: Tim Quinn

Dear Fellow Democrats,


I've so enjoyed this campaign for the Democratic nomination for Princeton Council, which has strengthened my commitment to serving everyone in Princeton. When I was a boy growing up in a working class household, I would hear my family talk with great admiration and affection about leaders like Franklin Delano Roosevelt and John F. Kennedy. I've never forgotten why my family  felt this fondness: we believed these leaders somehow understood us, though we had never met. We just knew they understood our struggles and our dreams for our families, our communities and our nation.

Candidate Statement: Leticia Fraga

Fellow Princeton Democrats,

Primary Day is almost upon us and I want to thank the other candidates for a great campaign season. 

I also want to underscore my strong commitment to this country where, with lots of help, it has been possible for me to build my own American Dream — to raise my children, to earn a living and to live in safety. 

This is not a privilege I take lightly. I’ve lived in other countries, and I have seen how people live. I feel committed to this town and its residents, to our shared principles and way of life.

Candidate Statement: Anne Neumann

Dear PCDO members,


Let me outline a vision for Princeton that many of us share and suggest some policies to help achieve that vision. I learned these policies during my extensive municipal service and from research I've done as Chair of the PCDO's Local Issues Committee. If you share my vision and trust the policies I'm suggesting, please vote for me in Tuesday's primary.

PCDO Endorsement Meeting Results

At the March 20th PCDO membership meeting, Liz Lempert receive the unanimous endorsement by acclamation from the club in her bid for a second term as Mayor.


The main event of the evening was the forum among four contenders running for two open seats on the Princeton Council. As a result of the strong candidate pool, the membership spread their votes such that no candidate received the 60% required to attain the club's endorsement. In the final count, Jenny Crumiller, Tim Quinn, and Anne Neumann each received the support level of 40% after the second ballot.


A total of 166 valid ballots were cast. Following the first ballot voting, the results stood as follows (percentages rounded to tenths):


Jenny Crumiller          80 votes (48.2%)

Tim Quinn                  79 votes (47.6%)

Anne Neumann           54 votes (32.5%)

Leticia Fraga               52 votes (31.3%)


According to the rules of the meeting, the person with the fewest votes, Leticia Fraga, was eliminated from contention for the runoff count. In the runoff, the following results were tabulated:


Jenny Crumiller          93 votes (56.0%)

Tim Quinn                  88 votes (53.0%)

Anne Neumann          68 votes (41.0%)


As per the bylaws, the results will be communicated to the Princeton Democratic Municipal Committee as part of their consideration regarding the candidates' ballot placement for the June primary. At the Municipal Committee meeting, the Committee will meet with each of the four candidates and then vote to recommend which is placed in the Democratic column, which will receive the official party logo and slogan next to their name, and the order of the candidates in the column. The Committee's recommendations are then passed to Mercer County Democratic Party Chair Liz Muoio for final approval before the primary ballots are printed.


The PCDO Executive Board wishes to thank all the candidates for an informative discussion of the issues. It also expresses its appreciation to all the members who came out to make their voices heard in our democratic process.
