Assembly Republican Leader Jon Bramnick will survey hurricane damage in all 16 towns he represents in the 21st District as New Jersey recovers from Hurricane Sandy’s devastation.
“As our communities deal with a tremendous loss, I want to meet with those who have been affected and offer any assistance possible. My office stands ready to work with constituents and local and state officials as we recover and rebuild.” Bramnick R-Union, Morris and Somerset, said. “I want to thank all the police, fire fighters and first aid personnel and other volunteers who put themselves in danger to keep us safe.”
Bramnick urged residents to stay off the roads as much as possible to allow utility crews to repair downed trees and wires and restore power as quickly as possible.
“Recovery from this disaster requires cooperation and patience during very emotional times,” Bramnick said. “Rescue and repair workers are doing the best they can and we can support their efforts by restricting non-essential travel.”
Bramnick said constituents should visit the New Jersey Office of Emergency Management web site, http://ready.nj.gov/, for important information about the recovery, volunteer efforts and power outages.

"Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto, a Hudson County Democrat, is balking. He claimed Tuesday that members of his caucus are divided over the measure and that his house is in no real rush – besides, even if enacted this year, the reforms would not take effect until 2017, he said. And with the growing belief that Christie could skip town to run for president, some Democrats are not eager to give him another talking point for his résumé. Christie’s plans to stump for Republican candidates in New Hampshire later Thursday only fuel that suspicion." - columnist Charles Stile- The Bergen Record
