Some mayors are mayors, and some mayors are superheroes. The New York Times has the story:
Mayor Cory A. Booker of Newark carried a woman out of a burning house and was treated for smoke inhalation on Thursday night. Mr. Booker arrived to his home in the Upper Clinton Hill neighborhood to find a neighbor’s house on fire, said Anne Torres, a spokeswoman. The Fire Department had not yet arrived, she said, and Mr. Booker went inside with two members of his security detail and rescued one woman. The mayor was treated at a hospital and released at 11:30 p.m. “Everyone is O.K.,” Ms. Torres wrote in an e-mail.
It’s hard to be any other mayor out there when Cory Booker was literally saving the lives of constituents with his bare hands.
If that’s the kind of courage you want in a president, chip in here to keep Cory in the fight.
