We bid farewell to the old year tonight, but will 2012 be a New Year for Plainfield?
As a new Council reorganizes the corporation's affairs on Tuesday evening, we can only hope so.
As the City begins its new CALENDAR YEAR budget process, we can only hope the Robinson-Briggs administration will deliver its 2012 budget proposal in a more timely fashion than in the previous six years.
With a new City Administrator and a new Director of Public Works and Urban Development, we can only hope that these experienced administrators will be empowered by Mayor Robinson-Briggs to move the City forward in an intelligent and proactive way.
With Plainfield's relocation into a new Congressional district, will our new Representative move to include Plainfield's needs and concerns into his legislative agenda in Washington? We can only hope.
As we move into a New Year, hope is the only attitude that will truly carry us forward.
