|Jerry Green referring to Plainfield: "I RUN THIS M*#&@CKER!"|
Jerry Green will, of course, be using the information he receives from this fake poll to shape an attack on me in his upcoming mailers for his hand-picked candidates. Many of the respondents I spoke to across the wards said that his injection of himself into this local city council race showed clearly his destructive hatred for our city.
First, we received the embarrassing 4-page mailer wherein Jerry Green attacks an administration that had been in place for only 16 weeks! How ridiculous is that? He makes many specious claims about what he has "brought" to Plainfield--we know that Jerry Green is now attempting to "bring" 3 unqualified individuals to the council table--individuals HE picked without any input from the duly-elected Democrats of this city.
Second, Jerry Green failed the residents of Liberty Village with his outrageous and idiotic statements about how he was "going to talk to HUD," how he was "head of housing" in the state, and so on. He said (on video!) that there would be apartments in the city for everyone, and that no one would be homeless. Clearly, it was his intention to have his council members let the PILOT expire--I will leave to others the speculations about what Jerry Green gets out of it.
Of course, Jerry's claims about his power were laughable, as everyone finally saw when they viewed his performance on video. His deliberate attempt to try to get the PILOT to expire and his nasty, bullying attitude--"I ain't got all night to be here!"--showed the Liberty Village residents that he has no power--all he has is bullying--as they also saw when he verbally attacked me outside the church 3 weeks ago. Many of those residents thanked me for alerting them by distributing a flier (which the combatants on the city council tried to say was "dirty" and "nasty"--lol) urging them to attend the council meeting to see the vote.
...Notes on the "Resuscitation"
Green's "vision" is clear--he wants to do nothing but destroy the new administration's vision to move Plainfield forward because he can't control things. Jerry Green's (once again) new best friend, the past mayor, is his true legacy--8 years of failed leadership for her, 22 years for him. He is now trying to resuscitate the failed career of Robinson-Briggs to get his unqualified candidates elected--he has said he made a bad mistake, and that he should have supported Robinson-Briggs for a 3rd term. Imagine my surprise to see private citizen Robinson-Briggs at the Richmond Towers event for Bonnie Watson Coleman. I guess she doesn't need to earn a living, like the rest of us.
Sharon's silly, ineffectual comments and "cheer-leading" had some folks cringing with embarrassment at how she continued to infantilize our senior citizens with the constant, annoying, and patronizing "yays" while someone else was speaking as she rudely kept trying to upstage the elected officials who were there. She had a bagful of campaign literature for Jerry Green's candidates, but was rebuffed in her attempts to put it out. When her friend Hattie Williams gave her the mic to speak, she started blathering on about how one of the candidates was "a commissioner and a chief"--the residents looked mystified, as they had no idea who or what she was talking about (police commissioner? fire chief?). The assemblywoman left soon after.
So, I will end by saying, beware of wolves in sheep's clothing--Jerry's handpicked candidates will say anything to get your vote. You see what they have said thus far.
