It seems Cory Booker has put away his feud with Jeff Vanderbeek — for now.
On Wednesday, the Newark mayor downplayed issues with the Devils owner (in April, Booker called Vanderbeek a “high-class huckster”), opting to focus on safety, security and a successful Stanley Cup finals.
“We’re doing everything necessary to make sure that the record of security for Devils hockey games continues to be what it is, which is virtually flawless,” Booker told WCBS 880. “We’re just thrilled about it. It’s going to be an exciting time.”
While Booker did reference his issues with Vanderbeek — “my prayer is that they work themselves out in the long run,” he said — he remained steadfast in his desire to see New Jersey bring home its fourth Stanley Cup.
“We have nothing but goodwill,” he said. “The reality is right now everybody in Newark is pulling for the Devils to win.”
