Cory Booker's Communications Director Quits
10 months ago
This is the second staffer to leave Booker's administration in last two months.
Is there something wrong within Newark Mayor Cory Booker's administration?
For the second time in six weeks, a key player in the Booker's inner circle has quit, according to NJ.com.
Esmeralda Diaz Cameron, the Mayor’s acting communications director, said she is leaving the mayor for a Fortune 30 company.
"It has been an honor to work for Mayor Booker and to represent his administration as city spokesperson," Diaz Cameron said in a statement on Monday afternoon. "The past four years have been a rewarding experience and I am proud to have been part of the historic achievements that are part of the city’s urban transformation under Mayor Booker’s leadership."
She worked for the mayor for four years rising through the ranks.
The former head of his press officer that Diaz-Cameron replaced, Anne Torres, was forced from her post because she failed to adequately prepare Booker for the interview, sources told The Star-Ledger in May. City Hall officials have denied that account.
It remains unclear who will fill Diaz Cameron’s post.
