Essex County Executive Joe DiVincenzo has endorsed Cory Booker for the Democratic presidential nomination.
“Over a year ago, I predicted Cory Booker would be our next president and I am overjoyed that he announced his candidacy today. I have worked with Cory on the local and national levels and, no matter what the issue, his concern has always been about doing what is best for the public,” DiVincenzo said. “His unique way of bringing people together, courage to work across party lines and passion to challenge what is wrong are the traits American needs in its next leader. Without a doubt, I strongly support Cory Booker for President in 2020.”
DiVincenzo has known Booker since the newly-minted presidential candidate was running for Newark Central Ward councilman and he was the president of the Essex County Board of Freeholders.
