To the Editor:
I’m writing to urge the election of Liz Lempert as our united Princeton’s first mayor. I support Liz for many reasons, but I want to note especially her key role in finding agreement for the design and financing of our spectacular new Community Pool.
Liz worked tirelessly, quietly, and effectively for over two years to bring together Borough Council and Township Committee members, supporters of different design options, and the Recreation Board and Recreation Department. She focused on the importance of a modern facility that would meet the needs of our whole community for decades and still be affordable for all, as part of a recreation infrastructure that will serve all of Princeton’s residents and families. As she will as mayor, Liz brought our varied community together to produce a result that works for all of us.
As a member of the Princeton Parks and Recreation Fund, I saw first-hand how important Liz Lempert’s leadership was to the Pool. I know she will provide that same kind of inclusive leadership in moving a consolidated Princeton forward in every way.
