Mayor offers 'neighborhood meeting' Wednesday


Billed as a 'Neighborhood Meeting' to be hosted by Mayor Sharon Robinson-Briggs tomorrow evening.

The meeting was promoted with the distribution of a flyer in selected neighborhoods (one Plainfield Today reader found his sticking out of the lid of his PMUA garbage container), as well as a note on the City's website.

The agenda includes an update on transit-oriented development plans, local development activity, roads, and public safety. Opportunity will be given for questions from the public.

It is interesting to note that Mayor Robinson-Briggs is hosting what is essentially a carbon copy of the Council's Town Hall meeting (slated for a couple of weeks later), though this one is planned for a star-turn by Her Honor only.

There is some irony in the fact that Robinson-Briggs will be taking a bow for transit-oriented development when she initially opposed funding a study on the same subject.

Funny how finding oneself in a re-election campaign changes one's perspective.

"Carbon Copy" must mean both meetings accomplish nothing. Get rid of all the politicians and the politically appointed, the so-called leadership, and this city would run much much better. This batch wastes time and money.

Perfect opportunity for Robinson-Briggs to demonstrate how adept she is at being ignorant and clueless.
