Political mailers a touch premature?

On the eve of a crucial court appearance on Wednesday (Sept 28, 2005) to determine whether Mayor Al McWilliams can switch parties and run as a Republican, there are indications the campaign machinery opposing his candidacy is already in gear.

Even before the judge rules whether McWilliams is eligible to run in the general election voters received a flyer in the mail that is reminiscent of last spring's primary campaign.

McWilliams lost the June primary but last week received an invitation from the Plainfield GOP to fill a vacancy on the ballot caused when Cheryl Arana dropped out.
