If you thought a serious spike in violent crime, rampant government corruption and chronic absenteeism (which didn’t help situations #1 and #2) were the only hallmarks of the Cory Booker (D-Twitter) era in Newark, Save Jerseyans, then you’re missing a big part of the story.
There’s a reason why Newarkers went to the polls yesterday and voted for a far-left radical like Ras Baraka.
Remember the Mark Zuckerberg Facebook grant? The one that was supposed to save the Brick City’s school? The New Yorker reported on Tuesday that, during the last three full years of Mayor Twitter’s tenure at the helm of New Jersey’s largest city, “more than twenty million dollars of Zuckerberg’s gift and matching donations went to consulting firms with various specialties: public relations, human resources, communications, data analysis, [and] teacher evaluation.”
I’d laugh, Save Jerseyans, but one again, the joke that is Cory Booker is at our children’s expense. There’s nothing funny about an unnecessary, expensive, grossly inequitable failure that could’ve been avoided with a little less time on Twitter and a lot more time leading.
