Unpleasant Surprise for Christie in Iowa: Sandy Survivors Protest, say, "Finish the Job, Get our Families Home'

Unpleasant Surprise for Christie in Iowa: Sandy Survivors Protest, say,
BY AMANDA DEVECKA-RINEAR
SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

Governor Christie attended the 2015 Iowa AG summit to 'highlight and promote agriculture', with other presidential hopefuls. Yet with the two and half year anniversary of Superstorm Sandy steadily approaching and thousands of families still not home, some Jersey residents decided to highlight the plight of those still waiting to get home from Superstorm Sandy. According to recent reports, of the over 10,000 families the state’s marquee program, Rehabilitation, Reconstruction, Elevation and Mitigation or RREM is intended to help, less than 400 are actually home. Families are desperate for answers and action.

“I’m moving my family for the third time in a few months,” said Joe Mangino, NJOP member and community leader who was told to vacate his home in November despite the fact that none of the planned work has even started, “I’ve done everything I can to get home, and I’ve been heavily involved in the recovery since day two after the storm. I wish the Governor would do the same.“

Joe stood up in the midst of the summit to draw attention to the thousands of families who are still struggling. The Governor made light of Joe’s plight and thousands of others saying, ‘I’m magnetic, they follow me everywhere.’
