Time to re-group

October 1, 2011


[Nat] ~ Thank heaven the pool initiative was defeated. There were too many unanswered questions, too many inequities, too many generalizations. And far, far too much invective.

Wonderful Idea – but NO

September 17, 2011


[Nathaniel Brown] ~ Dear friends and neighbors, I am writing to you to ask you to vote “no” on the pool. This is not because I don’t want an aquatic centre in Princeton. Much to the contrary, I think it is a wonderful idea, and if a fund drive were to be organized, I would […]

August 4, 2011


[Spencer Coyne] ~ Area H does carry a lot of what happens in the town including the Arena and now Riverside. As for this referendum I am a little perplexed as to why the Town residents are voting on the same referendum question as Area H residents are. It will be the RDOS borrowing the […]
