Before running for the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors, Booker was an electrician and political director and community affairs liaison for a local chapter of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW). His campaign has a focus on affordable housing and mending the relationship between the community and law enforcement.
