Mapp willing to seek higher office

By Nikita Biryukov, June 02 2018 4:06 pm

PLAINFIELD – Plainfield Mayor Adrian Mapp plans to stay on in that role, at least for the time being.

“Well, I do plan to continue as mayor of the City of Plainfield, leading this great city to a place where it has never been and continuing to attract developers and investors to this city to make sure that our city is the absolute best city in the state of New Jersey,” Mapp said on Saturday.

Still, that doesn’t mean that Mapp, who’s held the mayoral seat since 2014, plans to become affixed to the role like J. Christian Bollwage has become in Elizabeth, where he’s been mayor for 26 years.

Though he did not say what office he might seek, he did say that he’d be open to a run at higher office down the line.

“I certainly would welcome the opportunity for higher political office,” Mapp said. “It would have to be the right office and one that I would have an interest in.”

Mapp, a former Union County freeholder, reportedly had an opportunity to succeed the late Jerry Green (D-Plainfield) in the State Assembly last month but declined.  Instead, Mapp backed freeholder Linda Carter for Assembly, and then Plainfield councilwoman Rebecca Williams for the open freeholder seat.
