Hi Dan:

I sent you a comment on your blog - not too tech skilled. But I realized later that your Dan! in red was a take on the Sharon! signs I remember. Got a chuckle out of me - I would be glad to help you if I am able.

Go get 'em Dan!!!

Dan,

Wishing you all the best in your campaign. Plainfield is a great city and it deserves competent, creative and independent folk like you in leadership roles.

All the best.

This is a welcome surprise, just can't help but take note that it is April 1st. Will the next video say, April Fools!

Dan, You are the MAN!!! I echo all of the previous comments and you will have my support! Let me know what I can do. We need leaders who actually care about this town, thankfully you are one of them.

Dan,

I have enjoyed reading your blog and really look forward to seeing more about the "real" issues in Plainfield. Your candidacy does offer hope and I look forward to hearing "real" solutions to the "real" problems in our city. Grassroots is certainly the way to go as you battle against the machine that is Union County politics. The real power lies with the people. They just don't know it.

I am very excited, but the first thing you must do is unite all the Democrats. We are new or old democrats, we are one democratic party looking to have better from the administration. I wish you the best unless.....

Is this an April Fool's joke?

Dan - Hopefully the first thing you would do is bring back the position of Chief of Police and end this personal vendetta against Santiago. Also high on your agenda, since you have the backgroud for it, is to eliminate any and all public relations staff that don't seem to do a damn thing to promote Plainfield or keep residents informed. You have consistantly pointed out the downfall of the Plainfield Cable Channel and website so would look forward to those types of media to be a constant source of information.

Good Luck Dan - We are seeing greater moves in a "Green Earth" and as Plainfield's Mayor, would love to see a "Non-(Jerry)Green" Plainfield!

This solves my problem, which was how to vote against the machine. But couldn't you broadcast your announcement without having a prepared script in your hand? :))

Well, Dan, I don't know if this started out as an April Fool's Day joke, but it is clear that you would have plenty of support for
3rd ward or citywide at large (remember, mayor is not until next year). Please don't let us have another moment of Don Davis or Harold Gibson. They say that for each response you receive, there are at least 20 people who don't respond. So, that means you already have about 260 votes. More are on the way. Say it IS so, Dan, my boy!!!

Finally! I've been waiting to hear those words...if there's anything I can do let me know..I'm a good folder and stuffer, but not so good on the phone! Do you have a staff of worker bees yet?
You would be the best thing to happen to this city since Al...I applaud your guts to take on the 'machine'! You GO, Guy!! Love, T.

Remington Veernick; Schoor DePalma and T/M Engineering may face giant cutbacks in their profits, so are you sure you want to stop so much money flowing out of town into the South Jersey economy??
