Assemblywoman Discusses Rebuilding Efforts After Sandy

Gove notes that revenue generated from the Jersey Shore as a major tourist destination is significant when measured against other aspects of New Jersey’s economy.

Assemblywoman DiAnne C. Gove this week provided an update on New Jersey's rebuilding efforts at the Southern Ocean County Chamber’s annual State of the Chamber, which was held at the Sea Oaks Country Club in Little Egg Harbor.

In addressing area businesses owners, Chamber officials and invited guests in attendance, Gove said, she, "along with my fellow 9th District Representatives Senator Christopher Connors and Assemblyman Brian Rumpf, will continue to press upon our legislative colleagues the critical economic and cultural importance of rebuilding the Jersey Shore."


Gove said that to date, much of the state’s immediate efforts in terms of financial assistance for businesses have been directed through loans from the EDA’s Main Street Disaster Relief Program, the Union County Economic Development Corporation and REBUILD New Jersey. 

For information on assistance available to businesses, the New Jersey Business Action Center has been established by the state as "the one-stop resource" for more information on how to get businesses back up and running. 

"Businesses owners seeking assistance should not hesitate to contact our District Office," Gove said. “The fact is that revenue generated from the Jersey Shore as a major tourist destination is significant when measured to other aspects of New Jersey’s economy and, therefore, is absolutely critical to funding the state’s overall operations. The success of our state’s tourism industry is a reflection of the hard work by you, the business community, in providing high competitive services that collectively has made the shore tourism industry a stable and consistent economic engine in even the most difficult of economic times.”

Brian Rumpf should be ashamed of his Town of Little Egg Habor an their Mayor who are making complete ASSES of themselves and putting the "screws" to the Residents... If your Town Hall Meeting is anything like the Town Hall Meeting held in Little Egg Harbor, I would't waste my time.... Absolutely "No Value" came out of that Meeting... With over 25 FEMA Reps as well as Borough Council, many questions could not be answered... While the State Department of Codes & Standards, provided Guidelines (http://www.nj.gov/dca/divisions/codes/) , for Repairs due to Hurricane Sandy, LEH "refuses" to stand by them... Charging Residents for Insulation & Sheetrock Permits. Then you have their Administrator Garret Loesch interview for the local paper and he is "crying" as LEH lost $200,000 in Revenue.... Revenue from a Natural Disaster ????? Let's not for get, the Govenor addressing the fact that there will be no increases on Property Taxes while an article comes out only yesterday stating that Shore Towns Taxes will Increase due to Hurricane Sandy..... As for AID ..... What happened to all the Aid from the Concert with Bon Jovi and the rest of the AID Scammers..... The Average Person will not see a DIME !!!! So, Assemblyman Rumpf, how are you going to HELP Little Egg Harbor ???
