A forum for Princeton residents to express opinions about local and national issues
Question of the Week: "What are your feelings about the events of September 11th being tied into the speeches at the Republican National Convention?"
"Well, being that I worked three blocks from the World Trade Centers, I experienced it. It was a huge event. Maybe the Republican Party overemphasized it to some point, but it was a terrible tragedy and a major event in this country."
Bill Biempica, Mansgrove Road
"After what happened to the Russian children, to me, being a mom, security is our number one issue. So I think that September 11th is quite relevant for discussion of who is to be our commander-in-chief."
Tracey Atkins, Jefferson Road
"I think that the Republicans did very well. Their approach was very even-handed, considering the circumstances, and I am pleased to see that they are having a bounce in their ratings at this point."
Everett Garretson, Fairway Drive
"The Republicans are making quite an issue of how wonderful a president he was with the September 11th emergency. And that makes me feel very strong about it, and our friend Kerry feels very strong about his military service, and now the voters have to pick who they go for."
Phil Seydel, Fairway Drive
" I think it's a good way to get sympathy for the Republican Party, seeing how much they want to help and build support and I guess whatever it takes to win that is what people will do."
Danny Brown, Witherspoon
