POINT PLEASANT — Mayor Robert Sabosik recently reflected on the 10-year anniversary of Superstorm Sandy.
“Sandy created an emotional and financial devastation to not just our waterfront areas, but the entire town. I truly remember it like it was yesterday and I believe I will always feel that way. No power for weeks on end, people losing their homes and other areas of town that never had flooding issues all of a sudden now because of shifting tides and waterways,” said Mayor Sabosik.
Mayor Sabosik told The Ocean Star that he thanks God that Point Pleasant has such great first responders and that they did not miss a beat.
“Besides having to deal with how Sandy impacted their personal lives, they were still here helping and getting us through it. I remember being out there while our public works employees and police and fire personnel were rescuing people in whatever equipment was available. Point Borough did what it did best, though, and everyone came together to help one another,” said Mayor Sabosik.
