Yup,
he's a familiar presence around here.
I've lived in the Newark area most of my life,
and have seen Newark Mayors come & go (A few of them
to prison! :P ) Mayor Booker has been like a breath of fresh air.

...but it has nothing to do with where he's from...

In NJ, we DISLIKE Gov. Chris Cristie as much as we LIKE Mayor Booker.
