Critical Election To Decide Newark Mayor, Council

Mayoral hopefuls Ras Baraka and Shavar Jeffries, along with 48 council
candidates, are vying to become the next leaders of New Jersey's largest city when voters head to the polls for the May 13th Municipal Election.

Baraka, running under the slogan, "Believe in Newark," has seven council candidates on his slate and Jeffries is running under the banner "All in for Newark" with a full slate of eight candidates in a race where all seats on the Municipal governing body are up for grabs.

There was no gentlemanly hand shake between the two men during a
candidate's forum held at New Community Manor Senior at 545 Orange St. Even the necessity of having to pass a microphone back and forth seemed to create a strain for Baraka and Jeffries, who obviously realize what is at stake as they seek to lead Newark in the post-Booker era.
