Plainfield's National Night Out celebration tonight

2005 Celebration leaders Liz Urquhart, Linda Carter and Tiffany Wilson.
Plainfield's National Night Out celebration is set for tonight, August 2.

The annual 'taking a bite out of crime' evening, which features food, fun and entertainment at City Hall, was originally sponsored by longtime First Ward Councilwoman Liz Urquhart.

The event has been enthusiastically embraced by Mayor Sharon Robinson-Briggs over the course of her administration.

While she was a City Councilor, Freeholder Linda Carter worked every year to see that events came together. Carter told me last night that she is serving on the committee once again,is once again serving on the organizing committee, though not chairing it this year.

The evening will feature entertainment, free food, bike giveaways, and information from the police and fire divisions as well as community groups.

In City Hall Plaza from 6:30 - 10:00 PM.

An enthusiastic participant.

How does everyone gathering at City Hall help keep an eye on the neighborhoods? Sounds like an oxymoron. Oh, that's our mayor.

We need police patrolling the streets. How is feeding people and giving them tshirts going to protect our crime filled street ? The Street just behind City Hall is one of the most dangerous in the city. Why doesnt the Mayor spend money on keeping the streets behind city hall safe instead of feeding her followers? Once again she is spending our tax dollars on the wrong thing!
