Bureau of Unintended Ironies

After slide presentations on fiscal governance and public safety at Tuesday's community forum, a random bunch of images appeared on the screen.

There was a sunset scene, then a temple, a hummingbird, spools of thread, green swirls, pelicans - all interesting but seemingly irrelevant to the forum.

As the mayor and City Administrator Mark Dashield continued to try to sell the public on the efficacy of the current administration, another image flashed on the screen. Older folks will remember its connotations in popular culture of the past. It was none other than the Brooklyn Bridge.

Ooops! Better delete that one next time.

A picture worth saving for future reference.

Also a picture worth of a Plainfield Comedy, if there is ever one made up.

They CANCELLED an employee "Appreciation" picnic for Aug 30, because the Mayor's staff could not get it organized correctly [using Tax Payer $$ for the 'Mayor' to thank the staff] Suppose to now be Sept 20th in Milt Campbell Field. I am glad they are not in charge of brain surgery.

Not an appropriate use of taxpayers dollars. But when did Mayor Briggs ever consider how she spent our money? From body guards to buffets to picnics. The path to my vote is not through my stomach and bet that is the case for most voters. Her self-importance is a head shaking.

Wow, Bernice! That was great. Now PLEASE consider using the same zeal and fire in investigating the goings-on in the school district on a consistent basis. Dig, Bernice, dig...for the sake of Plainfield's future! (Brooklyn Bridge, huh? LOL...just love it!)
