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
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.
