Princeton Mayor, Liz Lempert, Won’t Seek Re-Election
Princeton's mayor, Liz Lempert, will not be seeking re-election for a third term in November 2020. Lempert made the announcement during Princeton's reorganization meeting on Thursday (January 3).
Lempert has served two four-year terms as the mayor for Princeton. During her tenure, Princeton Township and Princeton Borough consolidated.
"Looking back on the seven years since the consolidation we have much to be proud of," Lempert said during Thursday night's meeting.
"This isn't goodbye yet for me, the year is a long time and I look forward to a supercharged year with this energetic council," she said in a statement.

It's not clear if Lempert will seek office in a different capacity (in town or elsewhere) in the future.
Meanwhile, Patch.com reported back in December that the president of the Princeton First Aid & Rescue Squad, Mark Freda, will run for Mayor in the November 2020 election.
