Simon Won’t Seek Another Term on Princeton Council

Incumbent Democratic Councilman Patrick Simon announced tonight that he won’t seek re-election to the Princeton governing body.

Simon, who served on the consolidation commission before seeking elected office, was weighing in recent months whether to run for a council seat again or possibly run for mayor.

“After careful consideration, I have decided that I will not seek reelection to Princeton Council this year, and also that I will not seek election to the office of Mayor of Princeton,” he said in an email statement to Planet Princeeton. “Instead, I will focus my efforts in 2016 on serving out the remainder of my current term on Princeton’s municipal council to the best of my ability.”

Incumbent Councilwoman Jenny Crumiller will seek another three-year term on the all Democrat governing body. Newcomers Leticia Fraga and Tim Quinn have announced election bids. Princeton Community Democratic Organization Vice President Amner Deleon is also considering running. Mayor Liz Lempert is also seeking another term.

“I am very grateful to the members of the Princeton community who have stepped forward to run for local office, incumbents and newcomers alike, and to those others who may choose to do so as well in the days and weeks ahead,” Simon said. “I wish them well.”
