Assemblymen Dave Wolfe and Greg McGuckin, who represent many communities along the Jersey Shore affected by Hurricane Sandy, expressed their appreciation today after members of the General Assembly visited areas in their legislative district that were devastated by Hurricane Sandy. The Assembly delegation was led by Assembly Speaker Sheila Oliver, D-Essex and Passaic, and Assembly Republican Leader Jon Bramnick, R-Union, Morris and Somerset.

“I truly appreciate that Speaker Oliver, Leader Bramnick and my Assembly colleagues took the time to visit the people and towns that felt the brunt of the superstorm,” said Wolfe. “The people and businesses in these communities are determined to rebuild their homes and businesses. They appreciate the bipartisan efforts that are being made to assist them in dealing with the many challenges they face. The support from Governor Christie, the Legislature and all government agencies will be extremely helpful as we move forward with restoring the shore.”

Assembly members visited and toured towns along the Rt. 35 corridor on the barrier island, including Seaside Heights, Ortley Beach, Lavallette, Chadwick Beach, Ocean Beach, Normandy Beach, Brick Beach and Mantoloking. Residents, business owners and local officials discussed the impact of the storm with Assembly members and the issues they face during the rebuilding period.

“Assembly members saw first-hand that although this storm may have knocked people down, they are firmly resolved to pick themselves up and put their lives, homes and businesses back together,” said McGuckin. “There is no substitute for witnessing in person what obstacles these communities must overcome. It is important that people know we understand their loss and will do everything we can as they recover from this catastrophe.”

Quote of the day

“The new agenda is charter schools. It’s a profit-making business. $500 million will not be in our hands. The school board is an advisory board. 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
