As the Mayor of Newark, New Jersey, Cory Booker has been a prominent figure within the Democratic Party of the United States and the Cory Booker keynotes address his path to his political position and his post as mayor. Having attended Stanford University for a Bachelor's Degree in Political Science in 1991, Stanford again for his Master's in Sociology in 1992, the University of Oxford for a Bachelor's Degree in 1994 (where he was also a Rhodes Scholar) and Yale Law School for his J.D in 1997, Booker has an impressive list of educational experiences.
However, it is more than education that makes Booker a dedicated and respected political figure. After serving as a Central Ward Council Member for the City of Newark from 1998 until 2002, Booker experienced New Jersey in ways that have equipped him to be a passionate politician. As Mayor from 2006 to the present, Booker has made many headlines with his service to his constituency -- such as a reduction by 40% in the area of gun violence and a revitalization of the Newark Police Department. The Cory Booker keynotes reflect his passion for the political realm.
