Baraka and Buono join forces in Newark’s West Ward

In front of a packed house flanked by West Ward staple Senator Ron Rice Sr (D-28), Assemblywoman Cleopatra Tucker (D-28), and Democratic Gubernatorial Candidate Barbara Buono, Newark mayoral candidate Ras Baraka today opened his West Ward campaign headquarters.

Baraka has already opened headquarters in the South, Central and East Wards.

“My goal is to transform Newark through building a broad-based movement for change,” said the candidate. “No mayor can change Newark all by himself. I want to inspire people to believe in themselves, to believe in Newark, and to believe in the power of all of us working together to rebuild our city. I will bring that message to every neighborhood, every block and every resident in our city.”
