Booker Announces 2022 Jersey Summer Road Trip

Booker

U.S. Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) today announced his 2022 Jersey Summer Road Trip, a series of stops highlighting New Jersey’s 21 counties and the priorities he continues to fight for in the U.S. Senate on behalf of the state’s residents. The road trip will focus on Booker’s ongoing commitment to serving New Jersey’s veterans, his efforts to secure congressionally directed spending for critical New Jersey projects and organizations, and his support of local businesses and industries.

Among the many stops, Booker will host a listening session at Rutgers with New Jersey Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin on hunger, nutrition, and health to hear directly from New Jersey stakeholders before the upcoming White House Conference this fall. Booker fought to secure funding for the conference, the first such gathering in more than 50 years aimed at combating hunger and reducing diet-related diseases.

“In years past, the Summer Road Trip allowed me to meet directly with New Jerseyans and listen to their concerns so that I could effectively serve them in the Senate,” said Sen. Booker. “I’m excited to once again travel across our state to hear from as many residents as possible. These events and conversations will help us develop solutions to the unique challenges our state faces.”

Booker’s 2022 Jersey Summer Road Trip is scheduled to begin Monday, August 8th, with several stops in South Jersey. His first event will be a visit to Stafford Police Department to hear about its On P.O.I.N.T. program, which provides on-site social workers for police departments to address the high volume of mental health, substance abuse, and social service-related calls and incidents that police receive. Booker secured federal funding to expand the On P.O.I.N.T. program this year.

More information on stops will be released in the coming days.
