Mayor Says Sandy Is A Focus

(From the Mayor’s State of The City address which he delivered on Monday).

… Finally, we will not forget our obligations to the people of this city still recovering from the after-effects of Superstorm Sandy.

We are resolved to make the efforts underway function more effectively and efficiently.

In the aftermath of the storm, I personally made it my mission to see the devastation in those neighborhoods myself. The people I met in Staten Island, and the Rockaways, and Coney Island, and Lower Manhattan suffered unimaginable dislocation of their lives.

I made a promise that if elected Mayor, I would make this recovery a focus of my administration.

In the coming weeks, we’ll make good on the pledge with a comprehensive review and updated plan to help those for whom the effects of Sandy are still an everyday reality.
