Plainfield Dem Committee sends three names to Council for Williams seat

Chairman Mapp reminded all of the time a man,
his wife, and his son were the three names.
Not this time.

eeting in a special session Tuesday evening, the Plainfield Democratic City Committee unanimously approved forwarding chairman Adrian O. Mapp's slate of thre names to the City Council to replace the seat made vacant by Rebecca Williams moving up to the Freeholder  Board.

Elton Armady, Alma Blanco and Tony Contreras were put forward by Chairman Mapp in the notice calling for the meeting. Each of them emailed committee members over the past few days seeking their support.

Mapp gave each an opportunity to make their pitch to the group and take questions from committee members.

The only question raised from the floor was what each one would do to focus on youth  issues.

The names will be forwarded to the City Council, which will choose among them at its June combined session next Monday, June 18. That meeting gets under way at 7:00 PM in the Council Chambers/Courthouse at Watchung Avenue and East 4th Street.

The person chosen will be sworn in and seated at that meeting.

The PDCC also unanimously adopted a motion that the successful nominee would also appear on the November ballot with the PDCC's blessing.
