The appearance of CoryPac, Inc. as a recently filed federal political action committee has the political establishment in a stir this week with questions about the statewide political future of Newark Mayor Cory Booker.
“Mayor Booker knows President Obama, Senator Menendez and other federal legislators who support Newark, its citizens, and its businesses, need our support in next year’s election to continue their outstanding work for Newark and other cities around the country,” said Bari Mattes, president of CoryPac.
“I’ve formed CoryPAC to promote Newark’s successes and advocate for its needs. Newark needs as many friends as it can at the federal level, and this is just one of the many ways we are working to make sure the entire country knows how Newark is confronting its challenges and what remains to be done.”
Sources say Booker’s ally formed the PAC – just in case.
