Following Governor Chris Christie’s 2013 State of the State Address, Senator Jennifer Beck (R- Monmouth) praised the speech’s focus on rebuilding from Hurricane Sandy and called on Congress to fully fund disaster relief in New Jersey:

Governor Christie has been a rock for all New Jerseyans affected by Hurricane Sandy; demonstrating strong leadership, compassion, and competence as our state rebuilds. As evidenced by his speech, the Governor understands that helping those impacted is the single most important challenge we face this year.

I know I speak for the thousands of residents who lost so much in the storm when I applaud the Governor for his focus and dedication.

We cannot, however, do this alone, and I reiterate my call for Congress to fully fund disaster relief for New Jersey when it convenes on January 15th. There is nothing fiscally responsible about allowing the taxpayers of the 11th largest state in America to twist in the wind while their homes and businesses remain in shambles.

To every United States Representative, I say pull your heads out of the sand and help us.

Communities along the New Jersey shoreline, a huge economic engine for our state, remain ghost towns as residents wait for the assistance they need to rebuild. The heart of the New Jersey shoreline is full of year round, middle class residents who do nothing but work hard and pay taxes. They deserve the same help from the federal government that residents of states like Florida and Louisiana and Mississippi received when catastrophic storms crashed down upon their shores.
