Lerman Studies Consolidation of Princetons

Tuesday, Dec 18, 2012

Amy Lerman, Assistant Professor of Politics and Public Affairs and CSDP Faculty Associate, was profiled in the Princeton Packet newspaper (December 18, 2012) for the survey work she is doing on the consolidation of Princeton Borough and Princeton Township. Professor Lerman and colleague Ryan Tully are surveying thousands of residents, prior to and after consolidation, because Princeton's consolidation efforts represent a growing trend across the state and across the country. The survey measures opinions about consolidation,  municipal government, and subsequent changes as decisions are implemented and services and structure of local government changes.
