A Dozen Residents Seek Dem Endorsement to Lead the New Princeton, Borough Mayor Decides to Run for Council

Moore
Lempert
Wilkes

Princeton Borough Mayor Yina Moore is not seeking reelection as mayor of the united Princeton. Instead she has decided to run for the new council that will govern the consolidated Princeton starting in January of 2013.

Moore is one of a dozen Democrats seeking the endorsement of the local Democrat club, the Princeton Community Democratic Organization (PCDO). Candidates had until Sunday to notify the PCDO that they were seeking the club’s endorsement. Members of the PCDO will vote to endorse candidates at 6 p.m. on Sunday, March 25 at the Suzanne Patterson Center. Members also had until Sunday to register and pay their dues in order to vote at the annual endorsement meeting.

With Moore not running for mayor, that leaves two Democrats seeking the endorsement of the PCDO — Princeton Township Committeewoman Liz Lempert and Princeton Borough Councilman Kevin Wilkes.

A total of 10 Borough and Township residents are running for the six available seats on the new governing body.

Moore is seeking an endorsement along with Borough Council incumbents Jo Butler, Jenny Crumiller, Heather Howard and Roger Martindell. The Township Committee incumbents seeking to serve on the new governing body are Lance Liverman and Bernie Miller.

The candidate field includes three newcomers, Scott Sillars, Tamera Matteo and Patrick Simon.

As of 7 p.m. Monday, Moore had not issued a statement she planned to issue Monday explaining why she has chosen to run for the new Borough Council instead of for mayor.
