THINK 13: New Mayor and Emerging Singer Woo the Crowd
CHICAGO – Two speakers from the worlds of politics and music inspired credit union executives attending CO-OP Financial Services THINK 2013 conference.
Newark Mayor Cory Booker outlined his career and described his upbringing as involved and surrounded, from a very early age, in a “conspiracy of love” that involved his parents, their friends and many others.
Booker also acknowledged in the question and answer session that he will likely run for the U.S. Senate, but he refrained from formally announcing because, he explained, there is a protocol in New Jersey that considers it bad form to declare for an office when an election for another office is currently going on. New Jersey votes for governor this year.
Booker also said he and other students tried to start a credit union while he was in law school but never got it off the ground before he had to leave.
