Working Families is proud to endorse Ras Baraka as Mayor of Newark. He has deep Newark roots and a distinguished record as a community organizer. As principal of Central Ward High School and later as City Councilman for Newark’s South Ward, Baraka has been a champion for progressive values.
Newark’s communities are under attack by Governor Christie and his Wall Street allies, who want to turn public schools into profit factories. They need a champion who will stand with them, fight with them, and listen to them. Newark needs Ras Baraka, and Working Families will put him over the finish line.
