Rush Holt on President Obama’s Visit to Jersey Shore

Rush Holt, New Jersey’s physicist congressman, released this statement after attending President Barack Obama’s visit to Asbury Park Convention Hall to check on how New Jersey’s doing rebuilding after Hurricane Sandy:

“Disaster relief is a key responsibility of the federal government, and I’m grateful that the president continues to return to New Jersey to check on our progress after Hurricane Sandy.

“As climate change causes more and more floods, storms, and hurricanes, we’re going to have to find ways to rise above politics to prevent disasters when we can and to repair damages when we must.”
