Outspoken Trenton Activist No Longer Supports The Mayor

TRENTON-- Local political activist says he no longer wants to be a part of the mayor's team.

Wednesday morning, Anwar's Reflections-- a Trentonian affiliate-- sat down with Daryl Brooks, a former Tony Mack supporter and failed U.S Senate candidate, to discuss what he calls 'the inside truth' surrounding Trenton Mayor Tony Mack and local steakhouse proprietor Jojo Giorgianni.

In an exclusive interview, Brooks, a Trenton native, chimed in on a variety of topics. Despite being one of the chief spokespersons at a City Hall rally last June in support of the mayor, Brooks is now calling Mack an outright liar' saying that he had questioned Mack's loyalty even before he won a seat in the mayor's office in 2010.

During the course of the 50 minute discussion, the outspoken activist cited broken promises and misrepresentation on the part of Mack and his underlings. According to the hometown activist, during a phone conversation with the mayor, Brooks asked him about the recent layoff of one third of the city's police force, and the mayor said, 'f*** the police'.

Brooks went on to express frustration and disappointment with what he calls the mayor's arrogant management style. He believes the mayor has a 'napolean complex', where the motto is, 'its either my way or the highway'.

The Trenton activist left no stone unturned. He called out elected officials, religious leaders, and also what he calls 'Facebook activists' that talk a lot on the popular social media website, but ultimately do nothing outside submitting posts online.

Brooks issued a scathing critique of these leaders and said change is needed.

During the interview, the political firebrand did not hold back.

With regard to Jojo Giorgianni, he said that the owner of JoJo's Steakhouse, has on numerous occasions, openly called many African American city officials 'spooks' and other racial slurs. He went on to say that Giorgianni sells 'crack pipes' at his North Trenton store.

When asked why he has decided to come forward now after being a vocal supporter of the mayor, Brooks said that he had become so sick and tired of being lied to and that he wanted to 'wake people up'.

  1. Wow, I have now more respect for this brother I did not know that he did all those things and he was speaking truth....

  2. Anonymous Reader,

    Thanks for the comment. Do you live in Trenton? What are your thoughts on Mayor Tony Mack? Do you approve or disapprove how he is handling his job as mayor?

    Let's keep the conversation going...

    1. Daryl Brooks just might be the most honest and real political activist that we have in Trenton or the state he keeps it real.

    2. Anonymous Reader,

      Thank you for your comment. What are your thoughts are where you think the city of Trenton is going in say the next 5 or 10 years?


  3. Peace! I'm trying to find out if you just interview targeted people? I ask that because it seems to people that you do. I dont know you personally but I see you post a lot and give feedback to people post on FB and I know for a fact a lot of things they state to you is not the truth! I see them posting false info and personal feelings there! 90% of these city activist just popppppped up 2 days before the last election! Go back and read the papers, city c. reports of meetings, google the internet & etc. under there names when Doug was in Office!!!!!! I was the lone STAR fighting vs him & his administration! I'm the one who setup a protest out side the Hotel when the Mayors conference came in to town! Im the one who lobbied city hall when the talks of gangs was at high levels and so much more! I must like I like your video blogs but lets just not target selected people! look in to what they post & saying! I got a great IDEAL for you that may take a MIRACLE to pull off and thats how about you set it up where all these POP UP city activist, concern resident leaders, city c. (whos not afraid to join) & etc. that you target as a move about we all meet up in a form Hosted by your self with us on a panel, we can even take questions from the public there and from on line, set it up as a live-stream event & etc. and lets see who all walks away standing on TRUTH, HISTORY, MOVES MADE and etc. FYI! Im the same person who offered Dough $750,000 in grants to keep the libraries open! And just recently offered City Council my bank account of $250,000...I was ready with bank paper work in hand & blank check to sign it right on over all I want is to make sure every penny go right to park & rec. and they give me a detailed layout penny for penny of where its going!! I know both Daryl & The Major, well as The Gov., The Pres. & Vice Pres. along with thousands of others but that dont mean nothing! So, how about doing an universal interview/debate and follow real leaders whom are for the empowerment of the people not just themselves!

    1. CEO Hope,

      Thank you for thoughtful comment. I think what you propose is worth exploring and coordinating. Community leaders need to get together and problem solve because there are some serious issues affecting our community. This is not just a thought, something needs to be done, if this sort of panel can get off the ground, can I count on you to participate???

  4. This fool is saying all the right things now....A few months back he crow bared his way onto the podium in front of city hall and no one in Mack's camp knew why he was there...But then again, he was saying the right thing so why would they remove him?? Shady dude makes things about himself and his past is forgotten because he is speaking out against the Mayor.

  5. By looking this interview I can now understand Mr. Brooks better. I had no idea that he had done all those things in the community he has saved some lives for the Dicks sporting goods protest. I realize that we need more outspoken Black men like him and I did not know that he was behind the Kathy Mcbride team that got her elected. My brooks you are truly amazing, sharp and your good for the eyes to, lol...

  6. Im so happy that this somebody is speaking out the political mess and also the preachers. Im must be honest Darren 'Freedom'Green, Tracey Syphax, John Harmon, Kevin Moriarty and David Ponton can't touch this guy. By listening to this interview I can see why they wanna keep this guy under raps and why would Mack piss this guy off.

  7. ask him nobody wants him around thats the cruxk to the queston maby its his sexal habits anware

  8. when a man is lying he says a lot of you kown you know iam a profiler he lying you can belive that my friend dont dirty your blog with this fibber
