Shaw thanks Princeton campaign supporters

Dear Editor: 

I would like to thank the many Princeton residents who supported my candidacy for Princeton Council and offer my congratulations to David Cohen and Leticia Fraga. While we didn’t prevail this time, our campaign had an important message for the community, and I remain committed to my decision to run a full campaign in spite of the pandemic. Our democracy demands no less. I want to offer a special thanks to my intrepid campaign team who engaged in the process with enthusiasm and creativity.  

After living here for 17 years, contributing extensively to our public schools, The Jewish Center, Princeton’s Economic Development Committee and the library, I remain ready to work more broadly for our town.  We will face huge hurdles in the coming years, from the economic impact of the pandemic to the arrival of many new Princeton residents.  We will need to develop a true economic plan – not just react to issues, but lead with ideas.  We will need to address transportation, affordable housing, infrastructure and our schools, to name a few.  I am committed to supporting the new administration in any way I can.

For all of you who voted for me, you have my deepest gratitude. Thank you for your support.

Until next time,

Dina Shaw
