Candidates Be Ware

I read in the Sunday Star Ledger, Cory Booker will have opposition for Mayor in 2010- if he chooses to run. Candidates for the seat are Clifford Minor and Anibal Ramos. As a Newarker who has not benefited from either candidates efforts, I encourage all hopefuls to remember the RESIDENTS.

Many residents can not argue a political platform. They can only voice their frustrations and the need for something better. They will choose a mayor who has delivered truly measurable successes.

Let me remind all politicians who will venture into the messy, kinetic web of mayoral campaigning in Newark that this is a year of change. The movement and momentum will build and continue forward, 2010 and beyond.

The question that will be asked as the current term nears completion: what have you done to stimulate economic development and opportunity within your constituency that can be mirrored district wide?
