O’SCANLON RESPONSE TO STATE OF THE STATE ADDRESS
Assembly Republican Budget Officer Declan O’Scanlon, who represents many towns in Monmouth County affected by Hurricane Sandy, issued the following statement on Gov. Christie’s State of the State Address which he delivered to a Joint Session of the Legislature today:
“Hurricane Sandy has drastically changed the whole dynamic of priorities in New Jersey for the upcoming year. Issues such as education, sick pay reform and shared services will remain important, but the governor’s address today properly places our recovery effort as the top priority. Addressing the needs of residents, communities and businesses devastated by the superstorm requires a bipartisan approach. Our collective voices need to keep up the pressure on the federal government to deliver on the funding our state desperately needs.
“The governor is right on point when he says we can accomplish much more for the people of this state by working together instead of partisan bickering. The road to recovery will take some time, but we are resolved to seeing this through so that everyone who needs help gets it. The entire state has a vested interest in rebuilding and helping the Jersey Shore recover. Its tourism trade and small business community are key parts of New Jersey’s economic engine that create jobs and generate revenues for the state. The plan is clear. Now it’s up to us to execute it.”
