Christie Says Sandy Aid Will Help Shore Open For Summer [AUDIO]

Governor Christie is optimistic this will be a good summer for the Jersey Shore, but he’s asking Garden State residents to continue being patient.

He continues reiterating the message that the Jersey Shore won’t look the same in 2013 as it did in 2012, but is hoping to make the Jersey Shore “functional and livable again.”

“That enough businesses will be reopen that people will come here and be able to be served by those businesses….That the beaches will be in good enough shape and clean and put together and ready to go that people will be able to come and swim in the Atlantic Ocean and sit on the beach and read their books and get a little tan.”

The governor is sticking by his July 4th goal date for having the shore partially reopened, with the hopes that by 2014 the shore can return to its pre-Sandy operations.
