“A bold progressive voice of the people” is how Jim Keady describes himself in an interview conducted in his Spring Lake home yesterday afternoon. The congressional candidate in District 4 just returned from a trip to Puerto Rico to help in the cleanup from Hurricane Maria and determine ways to help the victims of both the hurricane and trump’s indifference to their catastrophe.
Keady has had a lot of experience dealing with disasters and oppression. From Governor Christie’s mishandling of Hurricane Sandy (where Keady was told by the governor to “sit down and shut up”), to the sweatshops of Indonesia and Viet Nam, to the Syrian refugee camps in Greece, Keady has seen more pain, suffering, and mismanagement than one person should in a lifetime.
Recounting his visit to Puerto Rico, Keady has some specific suggestions as to what trump should be doing to ramp up the moribund response that the federal government has made so far.
