WESTFIELD, NJ — Women: Got business attire that you no longer wear? Drop it off at the Keller Williams Realty office in Downtown Westfield through the end of February and they’ll donate it to the Career Closet, a division of the Junior League of Elizabeth Plainfield that provides professional clothing to low-income women at no charge.

Women are referred to Career Closet by community agencies after they have successfully completed job training and/or readiness programs. The goal is to help these women increase their self-esteem and self-sufficiency.

“If your closet is overcrowded with business clothes that you don’t use, this is a great way to donate them to a good cause,” said Jeni DiVirgilio, a KW Westfield real estate agent and active member of the Junior League of Elizabeth-Plainfield.

After Bruce Patterson of Garwood was stopped from speaking at the Union County Freeholder meeting of March 22 regarding the politics behind refusing to give the party line to a sitting Freeholder, I thought this brazen suppression of free speech could not go unanswered.

At the April 19 meeting I answered with these comments.

After ten years of following government in Union ...
