There is only one contest at the local level in the Nov. 8 general election, for the Third Ward City Council seat. Candidates are Democrat Charles McRae and Independent Sharon Robinson-Briggs. The winner will serve a four-year term beginning on Jan. 1, 2017.

You can hear the candidates answer questions at the annual Plainfield League of Women Voters forum, 7 p.m. to 8:15 p.m. tonight (Wednesday, Oct. 26) in the Anne Louise Davis Room of the Plainfield Public Library. Candidates have submitted biographical sketches which are posted online at this link:

The other City Council seat up for election on Nov. 8 is the Citywide at-large seat, representing all four wards. Councilwoman Rebecca Williams, a Democrat currently representing the Second and Third Wards at-large, is running unopposed.

  1. Let's go Sharon !

  2. Just what we need, an ex-mayor who many believe proved her ineptitude for eight years on the City Council. Considering how hard her cronies on the City Council worked to keep Plainfield stagnant for the past three years, I'm not sure I trust her to do differently and keep Plainfield's interests ahead of personal interests, especially for someone who may want to be mayor again.

  3. Sharon doesn’t stand a snowball chance in hell, 3rd ward would be crazy to vote her in. You got this Charles!
