AMODEO RESOLUTION HONORING NATIONAL GUARD
FOR SERVICE DURING SANDY APPROVED BY ASSEMBLY
A bipartisan Assembly resolution sponsored by Assembly Deputy Republican Leader John Amodeo that recognizes the efforts made by New Jersey’s National Guard during Hurricane Sandy was unanimously approved by the General Assembly today. The bill, AR-119, acknowledges the great debt of gratitude owed to the men and women who selflessly served the citizens of New Jersey on October 29, 2012.
“New Jersey’s National Guard performed in exemplary fashion during a time that was arguably the worst natural disaster in our state’s history. The Guard should be commended for the flawless way it carried out its duty to protect the people of this state during and after this catastrophe,” said Amodeo, R-Atlantic. “Many of the guardsmen and women left their own homes and families behind in answering the call to serve. It is fitting that we acknowledge the men and women who put service before self and thank them for their dedication and commitment.”
Other Assembly sponsors of the resolution include: Assemblyman Ralph Caputo, Assemblywoman Cleopatra Tucker, Assemblymen Gilbert Wilson, Joseph Egan, Lou Greenwald and Anthony M. Bucco and Assemblywoman Pamela Lampitt.

"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
