New York, NY – Today, Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (NY-08) released the following statement in connection with the forthcoming third anniversary of Superstorm Sandy:
“Three years ago, Superstorm Sandy devastated many of the neighborhoods I represent in Southern Brooklyn and Queens, including Coney Island, Sea Gate, Canarsie and Howard Beach. New Yorkers are a strong and resilient people and we have made significant progress in rebuilding the homes, worship centers and neighborhood businesses damaged in the storm.
In Washington, the congressional delegation has worked hard to bring home billions of dollars in federal funding for our recovery efforts. But there is much more to be done.
We will not rest until every storm victim who was knocked down is back on their feet.”
