Christie Returns to Storm-Battered Shore Town

AP

Gov. Chris Christie is returning to a Jersey Shore town whose boardwalk was washed away by Superstorm Sandy.

Christie will be in Belmar on Tuesday for another of his signature town halls. The meeting at the Monmouth County shore town will focus on ongoing storm recovery efforts.

The 51-year-old Republican says he sought re-election primarily to ensure that the state fully recovers from the October 2012 mega-storm, which caused $37 billion in damages and was the largest natural disaster to strike the state.

The administration has been criticized for the length of time it's taking for relief funds to reach needy homeowners.

Christie's office also has denied allegations that two senior officials threatened to withhold Sandy aid to a city unless its mayor signed off on a favored redevelopment project.
