Victory for Plainfield!

I want to thank the voters of Plainfield for their support of Barry Goode and Cory Storch, Democrats for City Council. I also want to thank you for supporting Emily Morgan, who won a seat on the Board of Education. I look forward to working with Barry on the council to move Plainfield forward. With Cory's reelection, we have retained an experienced and seasoned councilor who brings a wealth of institutional knowledge to his role. Emily's win clearly demonstrated that she connected with voters, and I look forward to seeing her serve with honesty, ethics, and dedication on the Board of Education. Below are the unofficial results from Union County Clerk's office.

Tomorrow (Tuesday) is Election Day. I am asking you to support Cory Storch and Barry Goode, the Democrats in COLUMN B. I have served with Cory Storch (2nd Ward) on the council and he continues to put Plainfield first. Barry Goode (1st and 4th Ward) has shown, through 20 years of community work, that he will be a strong and dedicated public servant. I am also asking you to support Emily Morgan in COLUMN 3 for the Plainfield Board of Education. Emily is a committed and knowledgeable voice who is beholden only to the children and other residents of Plainfield. She brings a fresh perspective to the issues facing our school district, and she will serve with honor and distinction. We need strong voices on the city council and on the school board who will serve only the people of our great city. When you vote tomorrow, please support these three candidates.  Polls are open from 6:00 am - 8:00 pm.
