BOOKER STOPS IN CUMBERLAND TO SUPPORT SANDY RECOVERY

Cumberland County will be included in a federal program that could help many families stay in their home. U.S. Senator Cory Booker made the announcement on Thursday, saying that about 600 families could stay in their home under this program. Booker was joined at the announcement by Freeholder Director Joe Derella, Bridgeton Mayor Albert Kelly, Assemblywoman Celeste Riley and Cumberland County Economic Development Director James Watson. The Distressed Asset program has already been opened up to the nine New Jersey counties designated as the main recipients of federal Sandy aid – a group Cumberland was not part of – and roughly 600 families in those counties were also determined to be eligible to participate in it.
