New Jersey residents are bracing themselves for Hurricane Sandy, but Governor Chris Christie and Newark Mayor are doing their best to put their constituents’ minds at ease by keeping them informed. Christie and Booker are among the best when it comes to politicians who understand the power of using social media tools like Twitter to spread messages. Their tweets regarding Hurricane Sandy are no exception:

Booker not only kept Newark residents abreast of all hurricane developments, but he spoke with them through Twitter and also personally paid wellness checks.

Christie and Booker exemplify what we look for in politicians: officials who genuinely look out for the needs and concerns of their constituents. And New Jersey residents can rest assured that they will not be alone in riding out the coming storm.
