Mark Freda, democratic candidate for Princeton mayor, was recently featured on Princeton Community Television’s August 2020 episode of Breezin’ with Bierman with host Adam Bierman. In the 30-minute live broadcast, Freda answered questions “from the street,” sharing personal stories about his public service background, transparent communication style, and what he hopes to bring to the position of mayor as an elected official in 2021.

“My mother instilled in me a real sense of giving back to the community and helping others. Hopefully, I can use that to make a positive impact on what’s happening in our town,” said Freda. “I want other opinions, I want people of different backgrounds, and different perspectives to be part of the process. I want to listen to people. And if someone asks me my opinion, I’ll tell them exactly what I’m thinking. It’s important that we are able to have difficult conversations.”
