Plainfield Dems rally tonight

Tonight's rally for Plainfield candidates on the Regular Democratic Organization's line caps a week of nonstop meetings in the runup to the June 4 Primary Election.

Assemblyman Jerry Green, chairperson of the local party, will gather the troops for a pep rally as we head into the Memorial Day weekend and the final week of campaigning.

The highlight of the local campaign is the contest between Councilor Adrian Mapp and incumbent mayor Sharon Robinson-Briggs, who is running off the line. Fourth Ward Councilor Bridget Rivers is unopposed. This year, Democrats will choose party candidates for offices ranging from Governor at the top of the ticket (Barbara Buono is the nominee) to neighborhood District leaders at the local level.

68 men and women are on the ballot for District representatives in Plainfield's 34 voting districts. Assemblyman Green, Assemblywoman Linda Stender and Senator Nick Scutari are also up for the party line, as well as Plainfield's own Linda Carter, who this year serves as Chairperson of the Board of Chosen Freeholders.

The meeting gets under way at 7:00 PM at campaign headquarters on West Front Street (next to the Dunkin' Donuts). Guests and supporters are most welcome.
