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

quote of the day

"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
