Assemblywomen Mary Pat Angelini and Caroline Casagrande, both R-Monmouth, issued the following statements on efforts to interject partisan politics into the shore’s recovery from Superstorm Sandy.
Assemblywoman Mary Pat Angelini, R-Monmouth:
“There is no place for partisan politics when our communities recover from the worst natural disaster of our generation. The Christie administration’s rapid response removed mountains of debris as quickly as possible with responsible protections for taxpayers. Continuing to practice the stale politics of the past will slow down our recovery and prevent our state from moving forward.”
Assemblywoman Caroline Casagrande, R-Monmouth:
“Superstorm Sandy created plenty of legitimate issues for our state to work on without having to resort to a political witch hunt in search of a problem during an election year. While our communities will deal with the aftermath of this storm for several years, some Trenton politicians couldn’t wait a few months before throwing a partisan punch aimed directly at folks who are still reeling from Sandy’s blow. Perhaps they would like to come to the shore to help rebuild, instead of sitting in Trenton throwing political darts.”
