In Response to: The Good Neighbor

As an alumnus and trustee of Isles, I was thrilled to see “The Good Neighbor” (feature, Oct. 8) about Marty Johnson ’81. I have spent my career in finance and general management, and am grateful for a chance to see solid business principles applied to critical-issues work. With a daughter at Princeton, I am delighted to know that the University has organizations like Isles nearby to serve as a laboratory. Isles is not just meeting the needs of urban individuals and the environment, but doing it in a way that allows students and faculty to learn alongside them. Princeton should continue to embrace this work only eight miles down the road. Marty Johnson appreciates our alumni support and friendship.
