Wow. This is excellent. Thank you for catching it and making sure we saw it, Jack. I’ve met Ben Haygood, along with several other Occupy Sandy organizers at a conference in NYC. The groundwork they’re doing is amazing, and they’re serving people the Governor’s self-serving spotlight has largely ignored. This, from Ben’s piece, is a killer line: ‘Sir — I AM Jersey Strong. It’s just that my local post office doesn’t recognize “beach behind the dunes” or “Toyota behind the Wawa.”‘ – Promoted by Rosi
Published yesterday in The Huffington Post by Ben Haygood, a field organizer/case manager for Occupy Sandy NJ. The stories conveyed are real stories and the solutions Ben offers are real, practical solutions.

Ben covers a wide swath of territory from Barnegat Bay in Ocean County to the Rahway River in Eastern Union county, including the hard hit areas in the Bayshore along the southern rim of Raritan Bay.
We have the people and the will to get things done, but many many road blocks still exist. Ben has provided a real road map that could move us forward.
