Christie to Shore Residents: Not Ready Yet
Speaking today in Sea Bright, a community ravaged by Superstorm Sandy in October, Governor Chris Christie said New Jersey still has a long road ahead before a full recovery.
He noted a significant amount of progress has been made since the storm, but it’s just a fraction of what will be needed before the “Jersey rebuild” is complete.
“One hundred days into this thing, we’re nowhere near ready for what we’re going to confront this summer,” Christie told a crowd at Sea Bright’s firehouse. “Which is going to be a bunch of tourists that want to come back down here.”
Governor Christie was with the Federal Housing and Urban Development Department Secretary today to discuss how the Garden State will spend 1.8 billion dollars in Community Development Block Grant money that’s been allocated by Congress. Christie said the funding will, obviously, be a main driver in New Jersey’s recovery.
