To the Editor:
I write to share a few observations about running for Princeton Council and to urge everyone to vote all the way down the ballot on Nov. 8. The sample ballots released last week list “No Nomination Made” in the Republican column for Princeton Council, but neither Jenny Crumiller nor I saw this as a license to take the fall off. With Mayor Liz Lempert, we’ve run an active campaign centered on Princeton and recognizing the broader implications of this election.
We’ve walked the neighborhoods listening to the concerns of citizens, sharing our knowledge of local resources, and offering our vision for an inclusive, welcoming, and well-run Princeton. Our local campaign will culminate at a Coffee With the Candidates event on Saturday, Nov. 5, 8:30-10 a.m. at the joint Princeton/New Jersey For Hillary Headquarters, 138 Nassau St., second floor. We hope you can join us.
What I’ve learned campaigning with them is that Liz and Jenny are remarkable leaders with a passion for a Princeton that works for everyone, from those born here to those who are moving in this week. We believe government can be a force for positive change in our town. As Democrats, our fundamental motivation is to do the most good for the most people.
Jenny, Liz and I were early adaptors of Hillary Clinton’s “Stronger Together” slogan and it proved to be a fitting choice for our joint campaign. We believe the same is true for Princeton: we are stronger together.
