The winds of change blew hard in Princeton Township in the early 1990s. It was January 1992. Republican Larry Glasberg had just been sworn in to his first, and only term, on Township Committee, and with that, came a four-to-one party majority, with the lone Committee Democrat, Phyllis Marchand, back in the minority only three years after her Democratic colleagues, then a majority, voted for her to serve a one-year term as mayor.
