Walker is a public school teacher and retired Major in the United States Marine Corps. He also serves as the Camden County Toys for Tots Chairman, and has done so since 2006.
Walker received his B.A. in Political Science from Rutgers University in 1980. He received his first Master's degree in Military Science from the U.S. Marine Corps Command and Staff College. He earned his second Master's degree in Education from Walden University.
In an interview with the Gloucester County Times, Walker listed his top priorities:
- "Public safety and perceptions regarding public safety are keystones to our ability to attract business and create employment opportunities for our constituents.Business growth creates employment opportunities and together these two priorities will have the ancillary affect of having a positive impact on education by improving our children’s academic achievement, helping to reduce crime and reducing the tax burden carried by individual constituents. Our government must be more open and more accountable to our residents. In the past our legislative bodies have acted in manners that had shown a disregard for the sensitivities and pocketbooks of our residents. These practices have made New Jersey a laughing stock and creates the perception that New Jersey is indeed the “Soprano state.” It is the duty and the responsibility of elected officials to inform the voters of what they (the elected officials) are doing, why it is being done and how the state and district will benefit."
