Former Council President Miller Asks Voters To Vote March 18 to Endorse Eve Niedergang

To the Editor:

I write as a supporter of Eve Niedergang for Princeton Council. At 7 p.m. on March 18 the Princeton Community Democratic Organization (PCDO) will hold its Local Candidates Forum and Endorsement meeting. I ask you to join me in voting to endorse Eve for the Democratic Primary Election in June, and help her take the first step toward election to Princeton Council.

The Endorsement Meeting will be at the Suzanne Patterson building, located behind Monument Hall. If the Monument Hall parking lot is full, there is parking on the south side of Stockton Street and on Mercer Street. In order to vote for endorsement you must be a resident of Princeton, a registered Democrat, and a member of PCDO with dues paid for 2018 by March 4. Voting will be by secret ballot and you must be present to cast your ballot.

The Endorsement vote follows the Candidates Forum. The Forum will follow a Q&A format and will be moderated by the League of Women Voters. There are seven Democrats contending for two open seats on Council. Even if you are not qualified to vote for endorsement, the Forum will provide a unique opportunity for you to meet, assess, and form your own judgment about the candidates.

Eve has been active in the Democratic Party for more than 10 years. She has served two terms on the PCDO Executive Board, and as the Democratic Committeewoman for Princeton’s 18th Election District since 2014. She has worked on the campaigns for local, state, and national Democratic candidates.

I believe that Eve is the best qualified candidate for Princeton Council. She has worked in the field of education both as a professional and a volunteer. As a leader of volunteers she has helped establish the Friends of Princeton Public Library Book Sale as one of the most important non-property tax sources of revenue that provide the funds for the books and other media that we all borrow. Eve currently works for environmental sustainability as coordinator of volunteers at the Stony Brook Millstone Watershed Association.

Eve is a demonstrated leader who has shown that she listens carefully to all sides of an issue, uses available data to define the issue, and arrives at a solution that works for our community.

We need Eve on Princeton Council to ensure that Princeton remains a diverse, welcoming, and affordable community in which to live, work, and raise our families. Please join me to help get Eve endorsed by PCDO on March 18, and together we will work to elect Eve to Princeton Council in November.
