|With Councilman Adrian Mapp and Gabby, August 13, 2011|
This evening (Tuesday, March 20) at 7:00 pm, the Plainfield City Council will be holding its first Town Hall Meeting of the year at Cedarbrook Elementary School, 1049 Central Avenue. The topic of discussion is the proposed Muhlenberg development. Please come out and make your voice heard.
Reposted from 8/17/11: On Saturday, August 13, several dozen Plainfield-area residents attended the 3rd Annual Commemoration of the closing of Muhlenberg RMC, organized by the People's Organization for Progress/Restore Muhlenberg Coalition. Below is a remembrance that I think captures the flavor of the event. We need to restore our hospital, but we also need the help of more folks from the surrounding towns, and we need to put pressure on our elected officials at the state and county level. We are all affected--remember, Muhlenberg is a REGIONAL facility. Thanks to IVPM for producing this video, "Ain't Gonna Mourn" (written and sung by Bennet Zurofsky, accompanied by Diane Beeny).
What hope is there if/
Apathy is the new black/
Who will speak for her?
