The Glover Report: A Hero and a Shero for Newark :: Northeast Bounces Back from Hurricane Sandy Devastation
While her name is not as well known nationally as Mayor Booker, Carter is certainly headed in a similar direction. She insists that people get the basics, the essentials for living - and not just during a storm. This woman is about her work 365 days a year. And the rest of the world is better off because of her, Baraka, and the countless others who understand that "service is the rent we pay for living." Read in Full >>
