Town Talk

A forum for Princeton residents to express opinions about local and national issues

Question of the Week:

“What does it mean to you that Barack Obama has been elected as the next President and what are your hopes for the new administration?”


“It means that we're going to have a lot of change coming up and hopefully things will improve a lot with the economy. I'm looking forward to seeing what he can do. It will be really interesting.”

Maria Phillip, Princeton University

“It means to me that we have gotten rid of George Bush, not that I ever voted for him, and I hope that Obama will be able to lead the United States out of the hole that we are in with two wars and the economy. He is a bright man.”

Julia Poulos, Witherspoon Street

“I personally cannot vote as I am not a citizen but I think that it is a good sign of the current trends in America. Coming from a social democratic country I can only see good things for the future. I am hoping for health care for everybody.”

Svein Hansen and Valere, Quaker Road


“It's an amazing change for the country. I hope it brings a positive viewpoint of America from around the world. It means a lot to me as an African-American to see someone of African-American descent make it to the White House and I think that it's about time that we have a positive image around the world again. It's really important to me to see how the world has been reacting to him and that with his election we can bring a lot of hope and togetherness back to the world.”

Claudine Dolberry, Humbert Street

“It's a chance to turn over a new leaf and an opportunity to inspire the American people instead of discouraging them with the headlines we have been seeing and enduring every day for the past eight-plus years. It will be a departure from an insensitive and callous administration. My family is split between Democrats and Republicans but there is just so much you can stomach to satisfy family. That is where the cross-over vote came from. Enough is enough.”

John DeGrazia, Lytle Street
