 What makes Lawrenceville unique?  Why?  Our neighbors and sense of community.  Folks talk to one another and look out for each other.  Folks in the neighborhood support LV businesses.

What is was one thing you would like to work on within the neighborhood?  Why?  I would like to make sure that LV remains an affordable neighborhood, rentals and the cost of houses.

What LU program or project most interests you?  Why?  LU’s support of the Lawrenceville Organic Community Gardens.  Without their support there would only be one garden. Also we are able to get funding and grants because they act as our fiduciary.
