Plainfield busier than a one-armed paperhanger this week

You get the picture...

Plainfield is busier than a one-armed paperhanger this week, with eight activities of interest.

Here's the rundown --
  • 6:00 PM: The PMUA Board of Commissioners holds its monthly meeting at PMUA headquarters, 127 Roosevelt Avenue.

  • 8:00 PM: City Council meets for its business session at the Courthouse / Council Chambers, Watchung Avenue at East 4th Street. Opportunity will be given for the public to continue comment on the proposed outsourcing of the Planning Division.

  • 8:30 PM: Democratic Presidential Candidate Debate on CNN, with Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Martin O'Malley, Jim Webb and Lincoln Chaffee. Vice president has not decided yet whether to throw his hat in the ring.
  • 7:00 PM: Ward 2 Town Hall at Cook School. Each of the ward meetings is open to any and all residents of the city, without regard to ward of residence.
  • 6:00 - 10:00 PM:  Plainfield Democratic City Committee Ball. Democrats will dine and dance at L'Affaire in an event which will raise money for the PDCC and other groups.

  • 7:30 PM: Planning Board's regular monthly meeting at City Hall Library.
  • 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM: NJ Spotlight's all-day program at NJPAC on New Jersey cities will offer ideas, insights and inspiration. Mayor Mapp and Economic Development Director Sanchez will speak in the afternoon on New Jersey Future's award for the Plainfield Netherwood Station area plan.

  • 11:00 AM: Congresswoman Bonnie Watson Coleman will be at the Plainfield Senior Center for a meet-and-greet with constituents. The general public is invited to this event, being hosted by the Senior Center. There will be time for questions with Rep. Watson Coleman. The Senior Center is at 400 East Front Street.
Complaints about having nothing to do this week will not be entertained.
