Update 3/28: Here is the PAW article on the symposium.
[Full disclosure: This reporter was covering a symposium on the black experience at Princeton a couple weeks ago for the Princeton Alumni Weekly. It only occurred recently to this reporter that Princeton Borough mayor Mildred Trotman's comments may be news.]
Princeton Borough mayor Mildred Trotman, in office since 2005, said she will probably not run for reelection.
Speaking at a panel discussion with former New York City mayor David Dinkins and Trenton mayor Doug Palmer on February 21, Mildred talked about her emphasis on consensus and fairness when governing. She then admitted, “I don’t think I’m going to run again.”
Trotman did not discuss further her comments, though Dinkins responded that one should “never say never.”
“Mayor Trotman, you’re going to run again, I bet you,” Dinkins said.
Dinkins also addressed the upcoming New York City mayoral race and lamented mayor Mike Bloomberg’s decision to run for reelection after overturning term limit laws.
“I like Mike, and I get along fine with him, but I would hope that he would not seek reelection,” Dinkins said.
