LWV Forum on April 14

The Plainfield League of Women Voters will hold its traditional candidates' forum for the school board election from 6:30 to 9:30 on April 14 at Emerson School, 305 Emerson Ave.

The school board election is April 20. Three three-year terms and one unexpired term are up for election this year. Those seeking the three-year terms are incumbents Wilma Campbell, Martin Cox and Christian Estevez, and challengers Rasheed Abdul-Haqq, Mary Burgwinkle, Jaclynne Callands, Catherine Crittendon, Danielle Fletcher, Mahogany Hendricks and Renata Hernandez.

Keisha Edwards, Carmencita Pile, Denise Riley and Clayton Tucker Sr. are vying for the unexpired term.

The League has posed three questions for candidates' responses, all of which will be posted on the Plainfield LWV web site. Sheets with the questions and answers will also be made available at key public locations. At the forum, questions will also be taken in writing from the audience and will be posed to candidates by a LWV moderator. Standard LWV guidelines for the conduct such forums will apply.
