What We’re Up To

Congratulations to Newark Mayor-Elect Ras Baraka

May 16th, 2014

Our client, Ras Baraka, was elected mayor of Newark, NJ on Tuesday, May 13. Baraka, the first mayor elected in Newark since Cory Booker left for the U.S. Senate, withstood a multi-million dollar challenge funded by allies of Gov. Chris Christie.

Baraka’s victory, combined with Bill de Blasio’s victory in 2013, cements BerlinRosen’s position as a go-to Democratic consulting firm for big-city mayoral races.
