A drizzly, chilly day did not dampen the enthusiasm of Democratic candidates who held a rally at Jerry Green (Park-Madison) Plaza Saturday afternoon.

With music by DJs Kai and Khadijah throughout the afternoon, shoppers and strollers gathered to sample free ice cream cones, purchase T-shirts or jewelry from vendors, and browse handouts at a literature table staffed by volunteers Marie Davis and Rose Marie Cathcart.

Mayor Adrian Mapp presided as Freeholder and Plainfield candidates addressed attendees. (I missed this portion, having stepped away for an errand.)

The rally marks the beginning of serious campaigning for the Democratic Primary which is three weeks from this coming Tuesday.

This coming Tuesday, May 15, is the final day to register for the June Primary election. Accordingly, Municipal Clerk 'AJ' Jalloh has announced that the City Clerk's office will be open on that day from 6:00 AM to 9:30 PM to register voters.

For your convenience, you may download a voter registration application in advance from the City's website here. For more information, call the Clerk's office at (908) 753-3222.

The Clerk's office is on the first floor of Plainfield City Hall at the corner of Watchung Avenue and East 6th Street. Parking and access at the rear of the building.
