By Matthew Arco | October 14th, 2013

Newark Mayor Cory Booker’s Senate campaign received the backing Monday of the Newark City Council.

Council President Luis A. Quintana and Councilmen Augusto Amador, Ras Baraka, Carlos Gonzalez, Anibal Ramos, Jr., Ronald Rice and Darrin Sharif issued a statement in support of the mayor’s bid for the U.S. Senate.

“Having worked with the Mayor since he was elected seven years ago, I have seen first-hand his dedication to public service and the progress we’ve made together in Newark,” Quintana said. “We know that he will continue to work to better the lives of those in Newark and throughout the state of New Jersey if elected next week."
