Plainfield Mayor Sharon Robinson-Briggs has an enormous money advantage over the New Democrats’ challenger, Councilman Adrian Mapp, having raised $140,000, according to the state Election Law Enforcement Commission, compared to $16,000raised byMapp.
“Money always makes a difference,” Mapp admitted. “It helps you get your message out there, but I have a great group of volunteers to help me get my message out. Her truckload of money will not help her get around the failed leadership she has exhibited under the control and domination of Assemblyman Jerry Green (D-Plainfield).”
A member of the Union County Democratic Party seeking re-election to a second term in office, Robinson-Briggs did not attend a candidates’ forum last week. There are at least two more scheduled before the Democratic Party Primary on June 2nd.
