Three months after Sandy’s devastating sweep through our region, there are still hundreds of people who cannot return to their homes.

Why is the repair and rebuilding process moving so slowly? What happened to all of the money from FEMA and other government agencies who were supposed to assist in this Herculean task?

Families should not have to live in tent shelters or still not have heat and hot water in homes that they have returned to. If our government can assist other countries all over the world in times of other disasters, then why can’t it assist our own citizens first and foremost?

Remember,as the adage says “Charity begins at home.” Let’s get our citizens who need this help get it – NOW! We are not living in a third world country, we are living in America, the greatest country in the world!
