'Just and capable' ... the search continues.
Plainfield's Charter Study Commission continues its work with a session this evening that will include interviews with three former City officials to get their views on the strengths and weaknesses of the current charter and ideas about possible improvements.
Tonight, the Commissioners will interview --
- LARRY BASHE,
who served as City Administrator from 1974 through 1981, under Mayor
Paul O'Keeffe. Mr. Bashe took office barely five years into the current
charter's life, when it was still 'new';
- HAROLD GIBSON,
who served initially as Director of Public Affairs and Safety beginning
in 1986, and then as both City Administrator and Director of Public
Affairs and Safety from June 1988 to September 1990; and
- DON DAVIS, who served as at-large member on the City Council from 2005 through 2009.
