Panelists discuss progress of economic recovery in the aftermath of Sandy – and the struggles still ahead

It’s been nearly two years since Hurricane Sandy made landfall along New Jersey’s coast, but many Jersey Shore communities are still trying to rebound from the battering they took from the devastating storm.

Much of their fate hinges on tourism revenue generated during the all-important summer months.

Host Marie DeNoia Aronsohn of NJTV, a partner of NJ Spotlight, sat down recently with Seaside Park Mayor Robert Mathies, Keansburg Mayor Tom Foley and NJ Spotlight Sandy Recovery Reporter Scott Gurian to discuss the progress of the economic recovery and the struggles still facing Shore business owners.

Watch and listen to the panel discussion that aired as part of NJTV’s “On the Record” program.
