Senator Jennifer Beck, Assemblyman Declan O’Scanlon and Assemblywoman Caroline Casagrande are pleased to announce the award of Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Disaster Assistance funding to four District 12 towns as well as Monmouth and Mercer counties in order to help cover costs from the storm disasters of late 2009 and early 2010.

Last winter was the third wettest winter on record, and included the wettest December followed by the wettest March, according to the Office of the New Jersey State Climatologist at Rutgers University. The winter of 2009-2010 had three major snow events, which required snow removal and salting, and the spring of 2010 had days of rain on end, which brought about significant flooding throughout the area and both residential and government property sustained damage. This funding will reimburse these towns and counties for the costs associated such extreme weather.

Senator Jennifer Beck, Assemblyman Declan O’Scanlon and Assemblywoman Caroline Casagrande of the 12th Legislative District offer the following statement regarding this year’s December 26th blizzard:

“If last Sunday’s storm is any indicator, we can all agree that this winter promises to be a rough one. Monmouth County received more than two feet of snow in less than 24 hours and, unfortunately, snow removal and clearing efforts were not as efficient as we would have liked to see. There was clearly a disconnect in communication between the state, county and local governments. Many essential highways and roads took longer than expected to clear and some residents are still digging themselves out from beneath many feet of snow.

Senators Diane Allen (R- Burlington/Camden), Jennifer Beck (R- Monmouth/Mercer), and Dawn Marie Addiego (R- Burlington) were joined by Republican women of the Assembly to call for a vote on Anne Patterson to the New Jersey Supreme Court. Their comments come in response to controversy surrounding the appointment of an interim justice to fill the vacancy created by John Wallace’s departure from the bench.

“There is no need for the controversy surrounding the Supreme Court to continue,” said Senator Allen. “The dispute over the interim justice could end tomorrow if the Senate President and Judiciary Committee Chairman would schedule confirmation hearings and a vote on Anne Patterson’s nomination to the Court. In fact, we never would have gotten to this point in the first place had the Majority respected the Governor’s Constitutional authority to make judicial appointments and the Senate’s responsibility to actively consider and vote on the nomination. Advice and consent means an up or down vote, not delay and deal cutting. Anne Patterson is extremely well qualified and has built an impressive legal and public service career. She should be judged on those merits and those merits alone, and all Senators should be given the opportunity to register their opinion of the nomination on the floor of the Senate.”

The 12th District legislators are pleased that the final steps towards remediation of the Imperial Oil Superfund site will be taken over the next year, but continue to be dismayed that is has taken three decades to clean this property located in Marlboro.

“The remediation of this land has been a long time coming,” said Senator Jennifer Beck, who was on-hand today for a press conference hosted by Edison Wetlands Association commemorating the 30th anniversary of the site being designated a Superfund site. “The soil remediation has reached its halfway point, and as long as the cleanup remains on schedule, the EPA is hopeful that it will finish its work here by November 2011. I know that all the citizens in surrounding areas will breathe a sigh of relief when they know that the pollution on this site has been cleaned.”

Senator Jennifer Beck, Assemblyman Declan O’Scanlon and Assemblywoman Caroline Casagrande are once again assisting in the Little Soldiers program, which provides gifts for children of military personnel posted overseas. Once more, several 12th District municipalities are participating.

Today, a bill sponsored by Senators Jennifer Beck and Joseph Kyrillos passed on the floor of the Senate that will designate the Red Bank Train Station as the Daniel O’Hern Station, in memory of Justice Daniel O’Hern, who served as both Councilman and Mayor in Red Bank, as well as a judge the State’s highest Court, and as chief counsel to the Governor.

“Justice Daniel O’Hern served the people of this State,” said Beck, “and the people of Red Bank, even going as far as climbing a ladder himself to paint the Red Bank Train Station, during his time as Mayor. I can think of no better honor than to have a plaque bearing his name adorning the station. Justice O’Hern has left behind a legacy of community service, and I am proud to have represented him as State Senator.”
