Barbara Buono to campaign in Plainfield Saturday

Presumptive Democratic gubernatorial candidate
Barbara Buono
will visit Plainfield Saturday.

State Sen. Barbara Buono will campaign in Plainfield this Saturday afternoon, according to a report by Assemblyman Jerry Green, chairperson of the Plainfield Democratic City Committee.

The Senator is expected to be in Plainfield
between 4:00 and 5:30 7:00 PM [note change] on Saturday and will visit the Plainfield Democratic headquarters office on West Front Street, according to a campaign source.

District 22 candidates Assemblyman Green, Assemblywoman Linda Stender and Sen. Nick Scutari are also expected to make appearances. Plainfield mayoral candidate Adrian Mapp will be unable to be present as he is with his family in Barbados this weekend, where a memorial service is being held for his wife Amelia's mother, who just passed away.

This will be the first opportunity for Plainfield-area Democrats to see and hear the presumptive Democratic gubernatorial nominee, who has not previously campaigned in the area.

Heavily Democratic Plainfield is expected to boost her plurality in the June Primary, and will be critically important in the November election where Buono is expected to face off against incumbent Gov. Chris Christie. Normally off the GOP campaign radar, Christie did make a campaign tour of downtown Plainfield businesses in 2009, creating a media stir.

Plainfield's Democratic Headquarters is on West Front Street near Park Avenue, next door to Dunkin' Donuts. Parking is available in the public parking area of the Union County office building and in the PNC lot next to Appliance-a-rama on West 2nd Street.

Chris Christie, here seen outside the Union County office building,
campaigned in Plainfield with District 22 candidates 'Bo' Vastine and Marty Marks in 2009.

When was it decided that the public could park in the parking garage. The citizens of Plainfield have been shafted and told to stay away. What a waste of land and buildings.

Hey, for a change, this looks like a Republican year. Go Young Campbell.The heck with all this Democratic Party cum-by-ya. As Reggie used to say, "Fight, you buggers, I hate peace."

I agree with Pat... who cares if the Dem's hold hands and get nothing done or don't hold hands and get nothing done
