Leticia Fraga Is Uniquely Qualified to Address Some of the Critical Issues Facing Our Community

To the Editor:

We are fortunate to have many qualified people running for Council. Leticia Fraga, however, is uniquely qualified to address some of the critical issues facing our community.

Affordable housing in Princeton becomes a bigger challenge every year as home prices rise. Working people have already been forced to leave the community because they could no longer afford to live here and the situation is getting worse, not better.

Princeton also needs a police and community relations committee to foster dialogue between our citizens and law enforcement. The controversy concerning the recent arrest of a Princeton University professor shows how badly this discussion is needed.

To address these needs effectively, Council needs a person with deep roots in the parts of our community that are most affected and understands their needs. That person is Leticia Fraga. She worked tirelessly on these issues and demonstrated the ability to work with people from all walks of life and to get things done.
