Two years after Superstorm Sandy the rebuilding effort has virtually stalled.Almost a decade after Katrina the 9th Ward is still a mess (the only homes built in the 9th Ward were by Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie).This is shameful of our government.
Below are actual pictures I took today.It kills me to see so many good people; seniors, veterans, my neighbors and friends basically living out of a garbage bag and not able to rebuild after paltry flood insurance payouts, government programs that are just full of red tape.
The next shoe to drop is the Exorbitant Rise in Flood Insurance Premiums and the flood maps that are "Riddled with Errors".Not just for folks in Sandy devastated areas.But the 5.5 million homeowners across the country.
We have to have our voices heard COLLECTIVELY.Please go out and vote for your elected official that will help us with Flood Insurance issues and with help rebuilding after Sandy.
I will be backing Congressional Candidate Belgard in CD3 in NJ.The simple reasons are as follows; Her opponent sold his insurance company for $80 million dollars.He is funding is own campaign with millions of his own money.He recently purchased a condo in our district so he can get elected here, he basically is buying an election.If he gets in congress do you think he will vote for the people or for the insurance companies.
I urge you all to please tweet and retweet us @StopFemaNow and share our posts.We will be adding additional elected officials not just in New York and New Jersey but across the nation.
I don't care if you are a Democrat, Republican or Independent.I WANT TO SAVE MY HOME.
There are less than 200,000 homes in NY state in a flood zone.How much will it cost to raise the other 5,300,000 homes in a flood zone across the nation?
Get ready for a $5 billion bill, NY
That's what property owners will pay if the city can't get FEMA to change its rules.
