Booker Says Newark Close to Matching Zuckerberg School Grant

Newark Mayor Cory Booker said the city is “about halfway” to matching a $100 million donation from Facebook Inc. founder Mark Zuckerberg to schools in New Jersey’s largest city.

“We are about halfway through that and I actually have been working for the past weeks to get more of that matched,” Booker said in an interview on Bloomberg Television in New York. “We should see some pretty big amounts of other people stepping up to match that money.”
