Jeff Vanderbeek spoke publicly for the first time Thursday to The Star-Ledger of Newark about a war of words with Newark Mayor Cory Booker.

Vanderbeek says friends warned him not to invest $185 million to help the city build the Prudential Center.

Booker has criticized Vanderbeek after arbitrators ruled on April 3 largely in favor of the Devils in their ongoing dispute over how the team and the city share proceeds from the arena.

 

 

Booker called Vanderbeek a “high-class, highfalutin’ huckster and hustler.”

Vanderbeek says he doesn’t plan to leave the city. Vanderbeek says the mayor can say whatever he wants, but “I’m a big boy.”
