Omar Boraie is a Proud Pop Pop

Just like the days leading up to the French revolution, we see the lower class grow in anger toward the upper class. The upper class, those who are corporate leaders and millionaires, are the recipients of much anger and hostility at this time. The lower class see the upper class as the cause of all of their woes. It is the upper classes taking our money. It is the upper class that is preventing us from coming up the latter. It is the upper class that is causing all of this evil.

I believe that there are many people in the upper class who are sinful human beings. I do not believe Sam Boraie is one of those people, however. Omar Boraie has been like a father to the city of New Brunswick, New Jersey. Everyone in that city loves this man for all that he has done.

According to New Jersey Stage, Omar Boraie has been able to turn around the city of New Brunswick, New Jersey. Omar Boraie spoke with the powerhouses that be in the city and develop a four-step plan to make New Brunswick a thriving city he knew it could be. He first wanted to start by making the place the kind of city that families wanted to call home. The second part of his plan he wanted to keep jobs in the local area. The third part of his plan he wanted to get a coalition together that would make New Brunswick their number one priority. The fourth, and last, part of his plan was to entice young professionals to set up shop in his area. For more details visit Bloomberg.

Omar Boraie enacted the first part of his four-step plan by reaching out to the State Theater with a proposal. He proposed that the theater would provide the space for him to show movies to the public. Seven movies in all were shown to families, and Omar Boraie covered all cost of admission. The last report said 7500 people were blessed. Check out Central Jersey Working Moms.

Omar Boraie enacted the second step of his four-part plan by convincing Johnson and Johnson to stay in the city.

Omar Boraie then enacted the third step of his four-part plan by reaching out to the movers and shakers of New Brunswick.

Lastly, Omar Boraie enacted the fourth step of his plan by donating $150 million of class a office space to the city of New Brunswick.

The American Institute Of Architecture

The American Institute of Architects (AIA) was established in 1857 by thirteen architects. The purpose for the organization was to give credibility to their field. Prior to the creation of AIA buildings were often designed by people who were not true architects.
