2020 Democratic candidate Cory Booker is struggling in his bid for the White House, so he’s decided to make the environment one of the central pillars of his campaign.
However, while he was the mayor of Newark, New Jersey, Booker was at the center of a water scandal that is coming back to haunt him.
Those who followed the issue of drinking water quality in Newark say it brings up uncomfortable memories of the time Booker served as mayor, from 2006 to 2013.
Reported in ABS news: As a presidential candidate, Cory Booker has made environmental protection a central tenet of his social justice platform. As a United States senator, he emerged as a leading voice on the front lines of safe water for urban-dwellers.
