Christie Names “Storm Czar” To Focus On Sandy [VIDEO]

Governor Christie has named former assistant NJ attorney General Marc Ferzan as his point person to focus on the state’s recovery from Superstorm Sandy as he upped the dollar figure on damage.

Christie at a press conference announcing Ferzan’s appointment raised the estimate on damage from the storm to $36.8 million and is requesting that amount, which is greater than the state’s entire budget, from the federal government.

The governor says the Federal Emergency Management Agency has distributed more than $500 million in aid since the storm and 230,000 New Jerseyans have registered for assistance.

Christie says more than 30,000 homes or businesses were destroyed or sustained substantial damage.

Christie says Ferzan will have direct access to him and not have to “make an appointment” or wait in line.

Christie says he will earn a cabinet-level salary but a formal title has not yet been determined.
