AT THE HALLOWEEN PARADE: The Arts Council of Princetons Halloween parade happened one lucky day ahead of the freak snow that hit Princeton the following afternoon. The pirate (Finn Neunier), on left, and the Little Mermaid (Clara Burton) met up as the parade formed on Palmer Square. The effects of the weather apparently slowed down the trick or treat traffic on October 31.
Compared to other parts of New Jersey, Princeton got off relatively easy in Saturdays snowstorm. But the unseasonable precipitation did leave its mark on roads, homes, and businesses across the area, making it seem more like mid-winter than the days leading up to Halloween.
Charter school reform is not really our raison dêtre, observed Julia Sass Rubin in a recent interview about the whys and wherefores of the Princeton area Save Our Schools (SOS) association.
With the campaign season winding down, the four candidates for two seats on Township Committee, Democratic incumbents Bernie Miller and Sue Nemeth, and Republican challengers Mark Scheibner and Geoff Aton, were asked to talk about the issues that have emerged as their top priorities.
Four candidates are vying for seats on Borough Council in the November 8 election. Democrat Barbara Trelstad is up for re-election. Fellow Democrat Heather Howard is running, as are Republicans Peter Marks and Dudley Sipprelle. Each shared some of their views about the issues they see as most important.
With Election Day less than two weeks away, Township Committee and Borough Council members met together last week for a final session on the question of consolidation.
In addition to the question of consolidation, the Borough mayoral race, and the races for Township Committee and Borough Council seats, Princeton voters should be aware of a district change that occurred last spring. The change, which places Princeton and South Brunswick in the 16th District, will impact candidates for the State legislature.
