Pascrell Responds to Christie Town Hall Comments

Demands governor to take responsibility for state's mismanagement of Sandy recovery

Today, U.S. Rep. Bill Pascrell, Jr. (D-NJ-09) issued the following statement regarding comments made by Governor Christie at a town hall meeting this afternoon concerning Hurricane Sandy recovery:

"When Hurricane Sandy bore down on the Northeast, I fought alongside my colleagues to ensure the federal government delivered the resources New Jersey families desperately needed to rebuild their lives. Instead of playing partisan politics and passing the buck, the Governor should focus on correcting the botched rollout of the state-run RREM program that has left scores of New Jersey families out in the cold.

"The federal government cannot be blamed for the state's lack of transparency, lost applications and the mysterious firings of Sandy contractors. More than a year after the storm, there are still folks not back in their homes that deserve answers. It's time for Governor Christie to take responsibility for his administration's mismanagement and do what's right by the people of New Jersey."
