New Poll Addresses Ongoing Sandy Issues [AUDIO]

Monmouth University Polling Center is asking those affected by Superstorm Sandy for their input for the Sandy Recovery Survey, which tracks ongoing issues of the storm.

The survey focuses on families who were displaced from their homes for a month or longer. However, Project Manager Tim Tracey says anyone impacted by the storm is encouraged to participate. The survey link can be found here.

Tracey says the survey’s goal is to determine whether impacted residents have access to information and resources necessary for recovery, pointing out the results will be shared with lawmakers on the state and local level.

“There will be some questions on communication with local municipalities or communities, some questions on dealing with government assistance whether it’s FEMA or the SBA, and there are some there are some overall questions on people’s health and well-being,” Tracey said.

Respondents from Bergen to Cape May Counties are encouraged to reply. Tracey says they want to give attention to parts of the state that were badly hit by the storm, but don’t get as much attention regularly.

“In Bergen County, specifically you have communities like Little Ferry and Moonachie, places that were specifically impacted by the storm, as well as in Atlantic County in places like Margate, Ventnor, and Atlantic City.”

Initial findings from the survey will be released to coincide with the October 29 anniversary of the storm hitting New Jersey. The Polling Institute will continue to track these issues over the ensuing months.
