Kyrillos Statement on Legislative Oversight Committee Hearing

Kyrillos Statement on Legislative Oversight Committee Hearing
March 8th, 2013

State Senator Joe Kyrillos (R- Monmouth) issued the following statement on today’s Senate Legislative Oversight Committee hearing;

The residents of my district, and so many others, were devastated by Hurricane Sandy. There is nothing that matters more to them than returning their homes and communities to normal, and that process began once the waters receded with cleanup. Fortunately, that cleanup process was expedited by a sound decision by the Christie Administration to put an emergency contract in place with a firm that was tested under extreme weather events like Hurricane Katrina.

Today’s hearing taught us that the Governor acted in the best interests of the people of this state and in a manner that will withstand scrutiny by the federal government and most importantly, secure the federal funding for reimbursement.

We also learned that there are some who, in their relentless campaign to criticize the governor, will even politicize a natural disaster. That is perhaps the most important lesson from today’s political theater, and it is disgraceful.
