In his weekly radio and Internet address, Obama says he has ordered his team not to let red tape and bureaucracy delay solving problems, especially for getting power restored.

To that end, The White House says  Obama on Saturday is gathering together top aides and state and local officials impacted by Superstorm Sandy as he continues to monitor the government’s response to the weather disaster.

 

Obama will convene a meeting with his team in the morning, to be joined by telephone by officials including Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and Federal Emergency Management Administrator Craig Fugate, as well as other members of the Cabinet, also will participate.

 

Following the meetings, administration officials will visit storm-damaged communities throughout the affected region to view response efforts firsthand, and make sure necessary resources are being provided.

 

Obama, in his final weekly address before Election Day, says there is “a lot of work ahead” for many storm-damaged communities.
