THREE RUMORS AND A FRET -- Rumor 1: City Hall was abuzz yesterday with word of a MAJOR MAYORAL MELTDOWN between Her Honor and City Administrator Carlton McGee, who will be out the door in just one more week. About what? Who knows? Rumor 2: Tyshammie Cooper, McGee's handpicked choice to the fill the vacant Finance and Administration director's chair will NOT be coming to Plainfield. That means TWO TOP SLOTS to fill -- AGAIN, IN LESS THAN A YEAR. Hmmmmm. Rumor 3: U.S. Attorney Christopher Christie is said to be ready to turn his BENEVOLENT GAZE toward Union County after the November election. Will there be any sleepless nights in Plainfield?
THE FRET? -- Take a look at the photos below.
PT's interest was piqued with Margaret Lewis' letter to the editor ("Burned eyesore still stands in city") in Monday's Courier about the burned-out house at 1220 Salem Road on the corner of Whittingham Terrace. Is she not right to fret after six months?
What HAVE her Council people done? What IS the City doing?
