One Month Later, NJ Names Sandy “Czar”
Superstorm Sandy slammed into the New Jersey coastline one month ago day, causing more than $50 billion in damage just in the Garden State and neighboring New York. With the governors of both states submitting requests to the Federal government for funds to cover the costs, New Jersey is appointing a storm “czar” to oversee the recovery efforts.
FOX News Radio’s Jeff Monosso reports:
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie says he’s talked to other governors who dealt with Hurricane Katrina.
(Gov. Christie) “They said it was imperative to have one person inside the Governor’s office…”
…Coordinating recovery efforts in the Garden State, hit with almost $37 billion in damage and recovery costs from Hurricane Sandy.
(Gov. Christie) “When they tried it other ways, things fell through the cracks. People didn’t know who to deal with.”
Wanting to avoid that, the Governor naming former Assistant State Attorney General Mark Ferzan to lead recovery efforts. Thirty-thousand structures were damaged or destroyed, and 230,000 people have registered for help from FEMA in New Jersey alone.
