**When current members of the Plainfield Board of Education, led by Campbell, garnered enough votes to move the election, I was disappointed, because I knew that this would impact voter turnout and add significantly to the cost of the election--upwards of $115,000, according to the Municipal Clerk of Plainfield. I was further disappointed with the newly-restricted voting hours of 2:00 - 9:00 pm--this will surely suppress the vote. If the board thinks cost should not be an issue in moving the election, they should have at least ensured that there would be no voting restrictions. That said, I hope everyone realizes that the school board election this Tuesday, April 19, is crucial to the future of our children.
