(TRENTON) Assembly Consumer Affairs Chairman Paul Moriarty (D-Gloucester/Camden) released the following statement Wednesday:
"Our hearts go out to those hit hardest by this terrible storm, and I offer my thanks and praise to all the emergency responders for their bravery and courage, and to the President, Governor and all the state and local officials who have made sure our state continues to have a strong response.

Please call the Division of Consumer Affairs at 862-209-0130 or 973-220-3474 to lodge any complaints..."
