(28th LEGISLATIVE DISTRICT) - Assemblyman Ralph Caputo (D-Essex) has been working around the clock to help storm-battered residents in the 28th legislative district deal with a myriad of issues as New Jersey continues to recover from Superstorm Sandy.
Specifically, Caputo has been touring his district, working with local officials through the Office of Emergency Management, participating in conference calls with local officials from throughout the 28th district and reaching out to the Governor's Office directly for help with specific issues. Caputo has reached out to the mayors in the district and said he will meet with Assemblywoman Cleopatra Tucker and Senator Ron Rice on Friday to discuss lingering problems and try to find a solution to improve communication between local officials and PSE&G, which has been problematic.
"Essentially, we have been serving as a triage center for constituents," said Caputo. "We have been trying to work within the system as best as we can and deal with problems directly whenever possible. We are here to serve and help and encourage residents to contact us if they have any problem resolving issues or getting information."

"Christie’s method for coping with scandal has been more complicated. In January, the seemingly-local issue of lane closings on the George Washington Bridge, which created a massive traffic jam in the Hudson River town of Fort Lee, became one of national interest when it was revealed that one of Christie’s closest staffers had ordered them—for what looked like political retribution against a Democratic mayor. The scandal was quickly dubbed 'Bridgegate,' and unfortunately for Christie, it played into his reputation as a bully. Christie's response was to act unlike himself: humble." - Olivia Nuzzi- The Daily Beast
