Fundraiser for McRae and Williams Tuesday

Rebecca Williams, Charles McRae and Linda Carter
are on the November ballot, Column A.

With two weeks to go in the 2016 election season, Plainfield Democratic City Council candidates Charles McRae and Rebecca Williams will be the guests of honor at a fundraiser on Tuesday evening (October 25).

Rebecca is unopposed as the Citywide at-large candidate, having defeated incumbent Tracey Brown in the June Democratic primary.

Charles also won his June primary race, defeating Alma Blanco. In November, he faces former mayor Sharon Robinson-Briggs, who is running as an Independent.

The cocktail reception is being hosted by Mayor Adrian O. Mapp and First Lady Amelia Mapp at their home, St. George's Manor, 535 West 8th Street. It will run from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM.

Rebecca and Charles are part of the Democratic Column A slate, which is headed by Hillary Clinton for president, Bonnie Watson Coleman for Congress, and Plainfield's own Linda Carter, as well as Betty Jane "BJ" Kowalski and Sergio Granados for Freeholders.

Suggested donation for the fundraiser is $250. Checks may be made payable to "Rebecca Williams 2016 for Council", "Charles McRae 2016 for Council", or the "Plainfield Democratic City Committee".

Wednesday evening, the Plainfield chapter of the League of Women Voters will present the 2016 Candidate Forum between McRae and Robinson-Briggs. (By LWV rules, only positions with opposing candidates take part in the forums.)
