Council Meets on June 13

The City Council will not meet until Tuesday, June 13 for an agenda-fixing session. It's on a Tuesday to allow for the Democrats to reorganize on Monday, June 12 and elect a chairman and other officials for two years. The Democratic City Committee members are on the June 6 primary ballot and those elected will serve for two years. There is one write-in campaign, for Peter Price in Ward 2, District 6. Look at your sample ballot to verify your voting district and polling place.

June 13 is also the date of the PMUA public board meeting for the month, and also coincides with a Board of Education work and study meeting.

All items moved to the City Council agenda will be voted on at the June 19 regular meeting, 8 p.m. in Municipal Court, 325 Watchung Ave.

Meanwhile, be sure to vote in the primary tomorrow (June 6). Polls are open from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. It is your chance to vote for a governor, state senator, Assembly member, county sheriff, freeholders, state committee members, mayor of Plainfield, City Council representatives for the Second & Third Wards at-large and for Ward Four. See the League of Women Voters candidate information sheet for mayor and council.

Have your say! The winners will be on the November 7 general election ballot, along with any independents who file on June 6. Good luck to all!


  1. Are you sure that's right Bernice 2nd ward 6th district. I saw Peter Prince's signs on Watchung in my neighborhood and I am in the 2nd ward 2nd district.

    1. See the link in my post for the history of why there is a write-in campaign in Ward 2, District 6. Friends may have put up signs to show solidarity, but the vacancy is in 2-6.
