Tweets from #Sandy
Since Hurricane Sandy hit and brought power outages to over 60,000 Newarkers, Mayor Booker has provided critical information about safety and recovery efforts to affected residents - via his Twitter account.
The Mayor has always used Twitter as a tool to communicate directly with constituents, but during an emergency of this scale and magnitude it becomes even more important that he be able to disseminate vital information and answer questions. Below are some recent examples of his tweets:
