Nov. 5 County Executive and Freeholders Election: Why Does It Matter to Princeton?

Wednesday, October 2, 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Hear from three people who know Mercer County well: Scott Sillars, Chair of Princeton’s Citizen Finance Advisory Committee that studied New Jersey county finances and duties; Irene Goldman of Ewing, a leader in reforming New Jersey elections which are administered by counties; and Jeffrey Laurent of Trenton, a keen analyst of both state and international policies and the role the county plays in its largest city. The discussion will be moderated by Ingrid Reed, retired director of the New Jersey Project of Rutgers Eagleton Institute of Politics.
