Wyckoff, November 1...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. But as my meetings continue, I’m starting to notice a sense of ‘Jersey strong’ resilience coming out of residents and community leaders, saying we will get through this. We will rebuild and be stronger from it.”
Senator Joe Kyrillos will continue his survey tomorrow in Monmouth, Camden, Gloucester and Salem counties.

"Enlisting Fox is another reminder of how much Christie has truly relied on insiders, including Democrats, to bolster his agenda or bail him out of trouble. Not long after arriving in Trenton in 2009, Christie began collaborating with George Norcross, the deeply entrenched Democratic Party kingmaker, to help him cut deals with a Democratic-controlled Legislature.
When his close ally David Samson resigned as chairman of the Port Authority over conflict-of-interest questions earlier this year, Christie replaced Samson with John Degnan, a pillar of the Democratic Party establishment. And now, confronted with a crisis, Christie has turned to “Jamie,’’ as Fox has been known throughout political circles since he began as an aide in the Democratic Senate in the 1980s." - columnist Charles Stile
