What’s Happening Today, Tue. 10-/29/2013

Today we celebrate the resiliency of New Jerseyans in the face of a catastrophic event with the realization that recovery is far from complete. Chris Christie today celebrates Chris Christie.  

Under the banner: “Superstorm Sandy – One Year Later: A Stronger New Jersey,” Governor Chris Christie today marks the one year anniversary of Superstorm Sandy’s landfall with a series of visits to impacted communities. Those communities do not include the affected areas of Paterson and Hoboken – two Democratic strongholds. According to one report today: “Poor families in Hudson County had the hardest time in the state recovering from Sandy.”

The press can attend the events, but at none of them is the press allowed to address questions to the Governor. (He hasn’t taken questions from them in over a month.) Such does not prevent protesters from airing their grievances over his mishandling of the recovery effort. In contrast, Barbara Buono’s events today encourage questions from the press.

The schedule has undergone numerous revisions in the past week. Originally there was no schedule for L. G. Kim Guadagno, and Christie had invited her to attend only one event. (Seems churlish as she might soon be our Governor if Christie resigns to run for President.) Now there is separate schedule with multiple activities for the LG., but she still is on the podium with the governor only once. (He does not seem to like sharing the spotlight with her.) There is another schedule for events to be attended by Mary Pat Christie. Also there is a schedule for administrative staff, some of whom have been censured for poor performance during and after the storm. You can be there to protest, but it is unlikely that they will take any questions. The lengthy schedules are listed below the fold.
