A question to the candidates for public office: What are your plans for dealing with the overpopulation of deer in West Windsor?

The problem has grown from nuisance to health concern with the increased cases of Lyme disease and hook worm. The herds of deer seen in school yards and athletic fields have grown exponentially.

Princeton and Montgomery have thinning programs. So far, West Windsor relies on Mercer County thinning attempts in Mercer County Park, but it is not reducing the herds in our pocket parks, school ground, and front yards. How should West Windsor address this very real problem?
