City's website a fount of non-information. Thanks, Sharon!


Screenshot from City of Plainfield website.
 
There was no mention of Plainfield in NJ Today's story yesterday on cooling centers in Union County and that led me to check the city's website.

While there are some tips about dealing with the heat, there is no mention of where to go or what to do if you don't have air conditioning.

Nor is there (yet) any mention that the city's swimming pools are open or what the schedule is since it appears there is a shortage of lifeguards -- still.

Meanwhile, notices about last night's Plainwood Square concert and car show seem to have been thrown up at the last possible minute.

The concert attendance was way down -- I would say half its usual attendance -- probably partly due to the weather (it was still 95° at 7 PM), but perhaps also due to the city's lack of publicity.

The car show appeared to have fewer than a dozen entries and no attendees when I went by. First of all, it was out of sight over behind the old Blockbuster store, and secondly the lot was totally barricaded so you would have had to park at C-Town and walk over.

With National Night Out due in just over two weeks (August 6), a check with the Clerk's office reveals that no paperwork has been filed as of today. This is a program in which Plainfield has participated for more than a quarter century.

Has Sharon lost all interest in Plainfield?

Did Sharon EVER have any interest in Plainfield?

Dan What has National Night Out done for Plainfield ? The Mayor and other Politicians use the night to brag about themselves and the citizens come for free food. The message about stopping crime has not STOPPED CRIME in Plainfield. The message that we must to work together and not just eat together to stop crime in Plainfield needs to be spoken.

Dan All National Night Out does is bring out the people to eat, give employees overtime, and Green and the Mayor a chance to talk up about themselves. If I remember right last year someone was shot during the National Night Out event. We need more Police out on the street and fewer Bars and more people going to church in Plainfield to help stop the crime.

Whoope dee effing doo. You still have not corrected your other post about how stand-your-ground was not the basis of the Zimmerman defense.

Keep people in the dark, including your readers, to villify a HISPANIC (although GZ been called a white hispanic and now today the star ledger rag referring to him as a caucasian) using deadly force to against deadly force.

Even you Dan are a racist for not wanting to admit that blacks kill blacks at an alarming rate and this b.s. by the President and all the other race mongers ....

I waste me time because there is no logic with you, the attorney general or the President himself.

All of you dumb as a stone ... listening to MSLSD.

Plainfield going bankrupt next? It's a democrat thing, isn't it?

DENY DENY DENY.

YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR! The Plainfield Democrats put her in office and you expected what? She is just counting the days she has left to spend the taxpayers money!

I wrote the mayor and city council people about the lack of information about cooling centers in Plainfield. I never got a response from our mayor and didn't see anything on the city web site. I think Sharon is showing her disrespect for the citizens of Plainfield even more now that she knows we don't want her in office again.

The mayor, Sharon, never knew the "Real" Plainfield or cared about Plainfield! Now it's very apparent she took marching orders from HER LEADER-J G and it paid off for both--very well, wouldn't you say!! it's all very obvious!!
dan, you aren't THAT naive!
