A Community Bulletin

The Spirit of Princeton Committee welcomes the community to honor the nation’s veterans as well as those young men and women still actively serving in the military by attending the 11 a.m. Veterans’ Day ceremony on Thursday, November 11 at the All Wars Monument (intersection of Mercer and Nassau Streets). The program will feature the Princeton community youth, municipal leaders, and the area’s active and retired military personnel. Speakers will include Princeton Borough Mayor Mildred Trotman, Princeton Township Mayor Bernie Miller, USMC Veteran Bill Johnson (also the former John Witherspoon Middle School Principal), and Princeton High School Athletic Director John Miranda. The wreath will be placed at the memorial by Spirit of Princeton co-founder and former Princeton Borough Councilman Ray Wadsworth and fifth grade students from Princeton’s Riverside Elementary School.

Standard & Poor’s (S&P), a Wall Street bond rating agency, recently announced that they have reaffirmed Princeton Township’s AAA bond rating, with “a stable outlook.” The AAA bond rating is the highest bond rating a governmental entity can achieve, and enables the municipality to borrow funds at a lower interest rate, saving taxpayers thousands of dollars. Mayor Bernie Miller said that Princeton Township is one of a select group of municipalities nationwide to have achieved this rating.
