Partnering with Plainfield: Video Premiere!

Today, I am premiering the first video of our campaign, produced by some Plainfield friends of New Democrats who are supporting my grassroots campaign for the 2nd and 3rd Ward At-large seat on the Plainfield City Council. You will most likely recognize many of your neighbors and friends who are committed to making Plainfield great! 

Feel free to upload and share with all your neighbors, voters, and friends!

Endorsed by Councilors 
Cory Storch (Ward 2) and Adrian Mapp (Ward 3)

New Democrats for Plainfield


Column D
Vote Tuesday, June 8


  1. Rebecca, the way you manage your blog and present your ideas along with all the community and civic service you have spearheaded, participated in, advocated for, encouraged others to be involved in - is a fine indication of how you will contribute to running our city. You are really somethin', Reb!
    Thanks for all of it. Julie

  2. Hi, Julie,

    Thanks so much for your kind words--from your lips to God's ears--lol! We have been working very hard to improve Plainfield on a grassroots level, and I am convinced (and a lot of voters seem to agree) that I can do more to help the city from the council table. The councilors who have endorsed me thus far have said that it is time for a TRULY INDEPENDENT and PROACTIVE councilor to join them to serve as an additional effective voice for the residents. The only record I have to run on is my civic and political engagement on behalf of Plainfield residents. When that record is attacked, or when I am demeaned by Rashid as just someone who is "studying and teaching English literature," an entire legacy of active political involvement and struggle engaged in by African American educators is demeaned. My two opponents, on the other hand, have records that should be scrutinized very closely before voters decide whether either one should be given another four years on the city council. They should be scrutinized very closely indeed.

    All best,


  3. So-o many good people w high hopes for Plfd couldn't do it, but the amazing thing is how the city has so- many great, brilliant people who crop up to try to fan the sparks to make a good fire to burn out all the trash and build again!
    LOTS of strenghth to succeed! R B G
