“Joni’s past involvement in tourism and as a founding member of the Princeton Retail Development Group will help to increases tourism as an engine for economic growth in Princeton and Bureau County.”

“We had several qualified candidates that applied for this position,” added Princeton Tourism and Visitors Bureau president Ann Dittmer.  “However, Joni’s work as a city commissioner and her continued interest in promoting Princeton as a tourist destination impressed the hiring committee.”
