Opportunities for our Youth
When candidate David Rutherford was growing up in Plainfield, there was a huge tennis program, a baseball league, and other opportunities for kids that no longer exist. We can’t even get census data about how many kids actually use current programs – and the capacity of these programs – which is more important that how many programs there are.
Having programs that engage the youth is a big part of developing a feeling of community in Plainfield. We must bring this to the forefront.
