Oliver & Bramnick Statement on Thursday Tour of Superstorm Sandy Devastation
Members of General Assembly See the Damage First-Hand Throughout Ocean County
(OCEAN COUNTY) – Assembly Speaker Sheila Y. Oliver (D-Essex/Passaic) and Assembly Republican Leader Jon Bramnick released the following statements Thursday after General Assembly members were able to tour Superstorm Sandy devastation in Ocean County.
The bus tour led by the New Jersey State Police Superintendent Col. Rick Fuentes commenced in Seaside Heights and included Ortley Beach, Lavellette, Ocean Beach, Chadwick, Normandy Beach, Brick and Mantoloking.
“Seeing the devastation today really hits home. It’s one thing to see it on the news. It’s entirely another thing see first-hand the challenge our state faces as we move toward rebuilding. This was a valuable experience that Assembly members will remember as we move toward helping our residents and businesses recover. We now have a better understanding of the issues we will all face together as we restore the shore. I want to especially thank Col. Fuentes, the state police and the administration for their support today. We look forward to continue working with them as we move forward.”
“It was heart-wrenching to tour neighborhoods devastated by Hurricane Sandy. Pictures cannot convey the magnitude of the destruction along the Jersey Shore. We will continue to work with federal and local officials to rebuild our communities as quickly as possible.”
