David Furst, NJPR
David Furst is the Morning Edition Host for New Jersey Public Radio. He joined NJPR in 2012. He was born and raised in the Garden State so he really has no excuse if he pronounces the name of your town wrong.
In 2011, residents voted to merge Princeton Township and Princeton Borough into a single town - Princeton. This week, in his state of the state speech, Governor Christie held up Princeton as a shining example of what consolidation can do to reduce the cost of services in New Jersey towns. He claimed a savings in one year of $3 million.
But Planet Princeton says that "$3 million" in savings is a myth that was debunked last year. Mary Mann with New Jersey News Commons has been following the story and speaks with New Jersey Public Radio's David Furst.
