Consolidation of Board, Commissions Disregards Wishes of Residents, Needs of Most Vulnerable

To the Editor:

I am writing in support of the recent letters expressing concern about Princeton Council’s decision to consolidate a board and two commissions. Prior writers have clearly expressed the problems with consolidation. I won’t repeat their arguments.

This action is one more example of the disregard by the members of the Council of both the clearly stated wishes of the residents and the needs of the most vulnerable members of our community.  If the Council members can’t (or won’t) serve their constituents, it’s time for them to step down from their positions. We all deserve better.
