Shore Senator Hopes D.C. Legislators Will Approve Aid Package
State Senator Jennifer Beck (R-Monmouth) called on Congress to stop the political posturing in an effort to pass the much needed Sandy aid package:
“This is getting serious, New Jersey is in need of help and Congress seems to be ignoring our citizens’ suffering. We still have thousands of people displaced or without homes, there is millions of dollars of damage to state and local infrastructure, the Jersey shore and beaches may never be the same.
“New Jersey is always there to help during times of need, now we are here, begging for assistance and it seems that some politicians in D.C. would rather play political games. Now is not the time!
“Please pass this essential and desperately needed aid package with haste so we in the North East can begin to rebuild. It is not just the right thing to do, it is the only thing to do.”
