A Righteous Democrat! Meet Mayor Cory Booker of Newark, NJ

Please understand that I don’t say such things lightly, but this is an unusual politician, indeed. A news article this morning, about a mayor running INTO a burning building to perform a rescue, caught my eye, because I remembered that a few mayors in NJ had been brave enough to get on board with Governor Christie’s reforms of state spending, including some Democrats. A quick check confirmed my memory – yes, Mayor Booker was on the record early in favor of Gov Christie’s educational reforms, and had a reputation for lending a hand to his constituents any time, any where, especially when the cameras were NOT rolling.
And, so, a big hand, please for that rare thing, a truly GOOD Democrat, Mayor Cory Booker or Newark, NJ.
