NEWARK - Hundreds of city workers will lose their jobs on Friday in Brick City. Tonight, political opponents of Mayor Cory Booker's administration met to vent their frustrations. The group, Reconnect Newark, met at a nightclub owned by former Newark Mayor Sharpe James' son.
About 200 people were in attendance. Reconnect Newark formed back in June. Its members are aiming to be the next political movement in Newark, but they are far from political outsiders. Their ranks include former Councilwomen Bessie Walker and Gayle Chaneyfield Jenkins.
