A special breakfast meeting to turn in
City Committee petitions.
Post is corrected: this is NOT an official PDCC meeting, it is a meeting of City Committee candidates running with Mayor Mapp.
Candidates for the Plainfield Democratic City Committee who are running with Mayor Mapp will have a breakfast meeting this Saturday (March 18) to turn in petitions for city committee seats for 2017-2019.
Each of the city's 34 voting districts may have a male and female representative on the Democratic or Republican city committees. In New Jersey, the two parties elect their committees in alternate years and members serve a two-year term. (The Republicans will elect their city committee members in June 2018.)
At the recent City Committee meeting at which Union County Dem Chair Jerry Green announced the official Democratic slate for Union County and mayoral offices, Plainfield chairman Adrian O. Mapp emphasized the importance of getting the petitions filled out in a timely fashion (they are due to be filed April 3).
The breakfast meeting gets under way at 10:00 AM at Plainfield Democratic Headquarters, 31 Watchung Avenue (next to Antojito's Restaurant). Parking available behind the office and in the public lot next door.
Coffee and light fare will be available as well as opportunities for committee candidates to socialize.
