I was informed that the “good guys” won their seats on the Council. It will not change Council control but with 3 seats and always the possibility that one of the other four will as has happened in the past vote with them on items critical to Plainfield’s welfare.
This result could represent a personal defeat Green who if as unconfirmed despite his positions as Chair of the City and County Democrat Committees was giving sub-rosa support to Ortega and Campbell in the Council races.
On the other hand the Mapp Administration should not take this as a mandate. It is hoped that there will be no more baffling weird personal appointments, unexplainable staffing attempts, or ignoring proper procedures.
