PRINCETON: Irving knows importance of affordable housing

Esther Mills, Princeton
Council candidate Lynn Lu Irving has the inside story on affordable housing in Princeton, because Ms. Irving’s mother, Joan Liang, lives in senior affordable housing at Spruce Circle. Ms. Irving visits her mother daily, and through the years has become a knowledgeable expert on the importance of affordable housing as well as finding solutions to the issues that affect the residents.
The residents of Spruce Circle are Ms. Irving’s and Ms. Laing’s friends. Ms. Liang was also a close, personal, friend of the late, beloved, Evelyn Voorhees, who was a commissioner on the Housing Authority of Princeton, and worked at Spruce Circle. Ms. Laing sang in Chinese at the memorial service and garden dedication for Ms. Voorhees which took place at Spruce Circle in late July 2013.
Ms. Irving greatly admires and supports the camaraderie that exists between Spruce Circle residents and the fact that they are always willing to help each other. She helps those that are infirm, in need of a meal or a friend and often drives residents to church, medical appointments and shopping.
Ms. Irving is a council candidate who not only talks the talk, where the welfare of Princeton residents is concerned, but more importantly walks the walk. It is with admiration and pleasure that I plan to vote for Ms. Lynn Lu Irving for Princeton Council and I urge you to do the same. 
