Plainfield Dems reorganize Monday; Council agenda session, Board of Ed work/study meeting Tuesday

Bit by bit,we are inching our way toward "just and capable

Primary election over, folks are getting back to work --


The Plainfield Democratic City Committee will reorganize for the 2017-2018 term on Monday (June 12) at 7:00 PM at Dem Headquarters, 35 Watchung Avenue.

Newly elected and re-elected members will be seated and officers will be chosen for the next two year period.

Guests are always welcome at PDCC public meetings.

Plainfield Democratic Headquarters is at 35 Watchung Avenue (next to Antojito's Restaurant. Parking available on the street or in the adjacent public lot.


City Council meets for its June agenda-setting session on Tuesday, June 13, at 7:30 PM in City Hall Library, 515 Watchung Avenue. A joint session with the PMUA Commissioners is scheduled for Monday, June 19 (the Council's regular business meeting).

Defeated in the mayoral primary, Councilor Bridget Rivers will serve out the balance of her term through December 31.

The agenda is full of routine matters -- including appointments to the Youth Commission. The Muhlenberg and TODD West redevelopment plans are also on, to be voted on next week. Will Councilors Rivers and Toliver find items to fuss about? Your guess is as good as mine.

Parking and entrance from the lot at the rear of City Hall.


After a hiatus during the primary election period, the Board of Ed will resume its schedule with a Work/Study session, also on June 13. The agenda says that meeting will take place in the PHS Conference Room at 8:00 PM.

However, the appearance of the ominous words "action may be taken" indicate a probable walk-on resolution. If the topic is expected to be contentious, the meeting may be shifted at the last minute to  a larger venue, such as the cafetorium. Be sure to check for any changes before going.

The PHS Conference Room can be accessed through the main entrance at 950 Park Avenue. Parking on the street and in the Stelle and Kenyon Avenue lots.
