McRae and Robinson-Briggs face off in LWV forum Wednesday


Candidates for the Ward 3 seat will take part in Wednesday's
Plaianfield League of Women Voters forum.
 

For ninety-six years, Plainfield's chapter of the League of Women Voters (LWV) has hosted candidate forums to introduce candidates to the public and provide an opportunity for them to discuss their views on issues of interest to the community.

The LWV will offer its 2016 Candidate Forum this Wednesday (October 26) in the Anne Louise Davis Room of the Plainfield Public Library. The forum starts promptly at 7:00 PM.

Charles McRae, Democratic candidate for the Ward 3 Council seat will face off against former mayor Sharon Robinson-Briggs, who is running as an Independent.

Each candidate has provided their background information and answers to questions posed by the League. That information is available online at the League's website here.

According to LWV rules, only candidates for positions that are contested take part in its forums, which means that Rebecca Williams, who is running unopposed as the Democratic candidate for the Citywide at-large seat, will not be part of the forum.

Come a few minutes early and take in the excellent exhibit of photographs of Plainfield life and people from the Library's extensive historic collection that is currently on display in the ALD Gallery.

The Plainfield Public Library is at Park Avenue and West 8th Street and is an accessible facility. Parking is available in the 8th and 9th Street lots.
