Senator Joe Kyrillos (R-Monmouth) took his weeklong survey of Hurricane Sandy devastation into Middlesex, Bergen and Passaic counties.
Senator Kyrillos met today with residents and officials at the Peterpank Diner in Sayreville, the Police Athletic League in Wayne where hot meals were served to those without power, and the Christian Health Care Center in Wyckoff. He continues to offer his support and solace to those who have lost everything from power to properties to pets and family.
“This infamous storm has caused more destruction and devastation among our residents than anything I’ve witnessed or care to see again,” Kyrillos mused. “This process of physical and emotional mending will certainly be arduous.

We will rebuild and be stronger from it.”

We are not going to tell the governor to unleash the dollars. Don’t be fooled. It’s not abracadabra. It’s politics.” - Paterson Mayor Jeff Jones- PolitickerNJ.com
