Mayor making fire division promotions today

Plainfield Mayor Sharon Robinson-Briggs is scheduled to make ten promotions in the Fire Division this morning, according to sources in City Hall. The ceremonies are said to be taking place at Fire Headquarters instead of the usual location at City Hall Library.

No public announcement has been made, so the names and ranks to which the firefighters are being promoted will not be known until after the fact.

Unaddressed is the issue of funding the salaries of the newly promoted personnel. In a recent spate of police promotions, the Robinson-Briggs administration came to City Council after the fact seeking a swap of budget monies to cover those promotions.

Robinson-Briggs has artfully taken the 'lame' out of lame duckness, that is for sure.

Shady Sharonda may have taken the "lame" out of lame duck, but she sure puts the "Shady" in Shady Sharonda. Still slick and slippery after all these years.
