Town Talk

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

Question of the Week:

“What do you think of how the economic crisis is being addressed?”


“I was glad that the President finally said that we do need a bailout, which I agree with. As a retiree and a Teamster I think that we need to make sure that the working people of this country are still safe and feel safe to retire so that their future will be there for their children and grandchildren.”

Philip Terrio, East Windsor

“I think that there are too many cooks. You have senators, congressman, the White House, the candidates all trying to weigh in with their different sides. There should be a core of experts to focus and tackle the problem. This solution may be the best that they can come up with now but there is no telling if it will be in the long run. However, something has to be done now.”

Brian Fitzgerald, Princeton Junction

“I really don't think that it is being addressed because they are asking the wrong people about the economic crisis. When I see all of these surveys and stuff I don't know who they're asking these questions. They should be walking around the streets and asking the citizens who are being directly affected.”

Mary Goddard, North Brunswick


“They're working on it, which is all that I can say right now. I hope that they improve the situation or we'll be back to hard times like when I was a kid many years ago. I think that they're doing alright for now.”

George Scanlan, Pennington

“It's being addressed in a fairly typical fashion. There's enough attention coming from the government officials, enough panic to make sure that everyone keeps paying attention to it. It's a shame that government has to rescue businesses that have made mistakes and essentially spending money to save people who have failed at doing what they should do well. I'm not happy at seeing my tax dollars going to that.”

Tom Baionno, Epping, New Hampshire
