Democratic candidate for governor, State Senator Barbara Buono stood along side Hurricane Sandy victims as they shared stories of their continued struggles at a news conference today in Little Egg Harbor Township.
The families claim that they can't rebuild without the money from the government ear marked for Sandy victims and now nearly 11 months later they are still waiting for a check.
Buono says that she wants the governor to cut down on some of the red tape involved with receiving the assistance and to make public how all of the sandy aid is being distributed.
Sen. Barbara Buono N.J. Gov. Candidate stated, "We're here to call on the governor because as long as he's still the state's chief executive it is his duty to do everything in his power to do everything in his power, to use every state resource to make sure these people are back in their homes."
In response to Buono's claims, Governor Christie's campaign sent out a statement from assemblyman Brian Rumpf, who represents Little Egg Harbor Township.
The campaign calls Buono's politicizing of Hurricane Sandy victims shameless and Rumpf says that Governor Christie has been "fighting for the relief we need and delivering it quickly and effectively."
