RECENT POSTS: Bernice mulls Plainfield politics in light of the possibility of changing the BOE election date.  Olddoc posts an attack on Councilor Mapp by former Councilor Rashid Burney, which Burney self-describes as 'sarcastic'. Maria solves (somewhat) the mystery of the supervisor job postings, but who will solve the 'poopnuggets' mystery? Councilor Storch, at For Good Government, notes major PMUA developments require resident attention. Councilor Williams, at And My Point Is. calls attention to Storch post, urges confirmation of Duane Young as permanent PMUA executive director. At Jackie's TV Blog, I'm waiting for her pix of the Chinese New Year celebration in NYC.
