One thought on “Booker Wants To Be Governor Of New Jersey

  1. Cory Booker wants to run for GOVERNOR. Look at what he’s done to Newark. He laid-off 167 well needed officers and over 200 Newark Residents who were long-time employees at City Hall. Cory Booker brought in outsiders who hold provisional titles to take the place of Newark Residents who hold permanent status. Crime increased, a deficit every year since Cory’s been in office and lay-offs. Cory Booker claims to outsiders he is liked in Newark; but Cory has yet to attend the hearing of the Citizens. He’s afraid to face the truth and hear the truth. It’s been 6 years and Cory has NEVER attended NEWARK CITIZENS MEETING. But the New York Times put the truth out there!
