Newark Mayor Cory Booker is Back But With Baggage
(Black Enterprise) — As far as inauguration’s go, Cory Booker’s second term installation as mayor of Newark was quite nice. But “nice” is a disappointment compared to the reception his supporters gave him four years ago when people were turned away from the New Jersey Performing Arts Center because it was packed to the gills; and when all of the nine city council people installed that day were favored by him. Since then he has become somewhat of a celebrity. In fact, Booker’s good friend and talk show host Gail King sat on stage at the inauguration with Booker’s family, and@CoryBooker has almost 1.1 million twitter followers.
