OC politicians failed us!

Today's news about the diversion of Sandy recovery money:  Hardest-hit OC got only 7.7% even after our votes re-elected Christie!  ---

Time for some political payback in OC.

--- “There is just far more money going to Essex than the impact warrants, and far too little going to Ocean... People displaced from their homes in Toms River are not going to move 75 miles to find affordable housing in Newark.”

--- According to state data, out of the initial round of nearly $160 million in funding, Atlantic County, where Sandy hit, received 20 percent of the funding. But 16.1 percent of the money went to Essex County and another 13.7 percent went to Middlesex. Ocean County, which was particularly devastated, received just 7.7 percent."
