Plainfield Dem Committee meeting Saturday

City Committee meeting set for Saturday.

Chairman Adrian O. Mapp has called a meeting of the P
lainfield Democratic City Committee (PDCC) for this Saturday, February 27, at 10:00 AM in the student center of duCret School of Art, 1030 Central Avenue.

Among the items on the agenda are a report of a committee studying the PDCC's bylaws and a discussion of the 2016 municipal primary campaign.

A committee of seven active Democrats, representing all four wards and chaired by Joylette Mills-Ransome, was appointed at the last meeting in January to interview persons interested in the two Council seats which are up this year (Ward 3, Citywide at-large). A report of that committee was due to be submitted to the chairperson today.

Chairman Mapp also solicited interest from those in serving at poll workers. Poll workers are appointed for yearly terms and work the polls at both the June primary and the November general election. In addition, they must attend a mandatory training session. The stipend is $200 per election day, which runs from before the polls open at 6:00 AM until after the polls close at 8:00 PM. Those interested in serving were asked to contact the chairman through the PDCC email at, marking the subject line "Poll worker".

Visitors are welcome as observers at Plainfield Democratic City Committee meetings but do not participate in the discussions unless permission is arranged with the chair before the meeting.

Entrance to the student center is directly off the parking lot at the rear of the duCret campus.
