Community BBQ at Mapps today

 

All are cordially invited as Council President Adrian Mapp and his wife Amelia host their 5th annual community BBQ today at their home at 535 West 8th Street.

Slated to start at 4 PM, you can be sure the fun will continue well into the evening hours as folks gather at tables spread across the spacious backyard to eat and schmooze, enjoying the company, the food and the music.

Read more about the BBQ at Councilor Mapps blog here -- and remember that canned goods and nonperishable food items are welcome and will be distributed to Plainfield feeding programs.

Attendees will also be updated on the coordinated citywide Democratic campaign to re-elect President Barack Obama. Visitors to downtown will have noticed that the campaign headquarters are now open on Roosevelt Avenue in the office to the rear of Pollo Campero, in what was formerly the Plainfield Senior Center.

Coordinated citywide democratic campaign to re-elect
President Barack Obama, are you kidding me?!? If this type of effort was spent on issues within the city we might actual see a change for the better. Instead we waste of time focusing on national issues when our elected officials can't even figure out how to operate a city of 50,000. This is just a distraction to avoid focusing on the issues that affect our city, and all of us taxpayers have to suffer with violence, bad school systems, foreclosures all over the place, no economic development vision, high property taxes, the PMUA, and so on. Neither Obama nor Romney are going to fix Plainfield, it's up to who we elect to do it so Let's focus on Plainfield because that will be real change that will ACTUALLY help the citizens on Plainfield
