Citizen Leadership: Deja Vu

Plaintalker recently received a press release on a campaign to empower citizens wishing to become involved in the city's decision-making processes. The group will hold a forum at 7 p.m. Monday in the Plainfield Public Library meeting room.

Click here for an earlier try at involving citizens by the same group. The Civic Responsibility Act was indeed passed, but not fully implemented. Not to demean the effort, but where is the follow-through?

Unfortunately, the meeting also coincides with the only City Council agenda-fixing session for June.

Anyway, for those who missed the past forum, it is valuable information and participants can learn more on subsequent forums on July 15 and Aug. 12. For more information, call Lauren Skowronski at (732) 548-9798, ext. 6.
