Endorsed by Plainfield Community Activists


As your Democratic City Council candidate for the Second and Third Ward At-Large seat, I am honored to be endorsed as the candidate of choice by these prominent Plainfield activists, educators, law enforcement, and elected officials!

Plainfield Police Captain Siddeeq El-Amin (Ret.): "Rebecca's dedication to public safety on behalf of all Plainfield residents is a refreshing, uplifting change in climate and is evident in her desire to work with the Plainfield Police Division to raise morale and advocate for more effective deployment by supporting the need for visionary leadership in the Police Division."

Mrs. Dorothy Henry, Educator and Senior Advocate (Ret.): "Rebecca fulfills the promise of the civil rights generation that came before her--the "dream" of Dr. King and now the "hope" represented by President Barack Obama--she is highly educated, enthusiastic, personable, and passionate about our city--a brilliant role model!"

 Second Ward Councilman Cory Storch: "Rebecca is smart, ethical, and independent. She will always put Plainfield first. We need her voice on the council at this time--she is my choice for change!"

Third Ward Councilman Adrian Mapp: "Rebecca will be a voice of reason on the council, she'll be visible in the community, and she'll always fight for what's best for Plainfield. Rebecca will be guided by the dictates of her conscience, not by the dictates of political bosses."

"Donald is one of the honorary chairs of my campaign for change. I met him several years ago when I developed and curated "At the March: Plainfield Remembers," an oral history/photo exhibit for the Historical Society of Plainfield, commemorating the Plainfield presence at the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, at which Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered his 'I Have a Dream' speech. I have been working with Donald on his own life-long dream of creating a sports and education complex right here in Plainfield."--Rebecca

I am proud to be endorsed by these outstanding individuals--they are our neighbors and friends. I hope you will join them in supporting my candidacy for the Plainfield city council by voting for me on Tuesday!
