Plainfield gets (re)organized

Right after New Year's, Plainfield
gets re-organized to take care of business. Here are some important reorganization meetings --

Plainfield City Council reorganizes Thursday, January 3, at 7:00 PM in the Courthouse/Council Chambers at East 4th Street and Watchung Avenue. Councilors Adrian Mapp and Tracey Brown will be seated and Mayor Sharon Robinson-Briggs will deliver the annual 'State of the City' address. The agenda for the meeting is available online here.
The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders reorganizes Sunday, January 6 at Noon in the Courtroom of Assignment Judge Karen M. Cassidy at the Union County Courthouse. Plainfield's own Freeholder Linda Carter will be sworn in as the Freeholder Chairman for 2013.
Newly elected members of the Plainfield Board of Education will be seated at the Board's reorganization meeting set for Monday, January 7, at 8:00 PM in the Conference Room of Plainfield High School, 950 Park Avenue. As of today, the agenda is not yet available, but you can check later here.
All meetings are open to the public. Reorganization meetings are when routine organizational matters such as election of officers and the awarding of certain contracts (attorneys, engineers, insurance firms, etc.) take place.

Those who follow closely may be able to align some contract awards with contributions made to candidates' election funds (if you know the maiden names of spouses, in-laws, business partners and friends).

Note: the Plainfield Municipal Utilities Authority reorganizes annually at its February meeting.

It should be interesting to see how our mayor twists reality to make herself look good. There was nothing good about this year and our mayor. I hope people remember this when it comes time to vote. She didn't deserve a second term, thanks Jerry, and she should be barred, or behind bars, from seeking a third term. Do mayors have term limits? I hope so.
