Newly sworn-in Congressman Hakeem Jeffries, representing a broad swath of Brooklyn’s southern coastline walloped by Superstorm Sandy, is hosting a Post Sandy Town Hall Meeting, according to a last-minute press release his office sent out.
The release states:
Too many New Yorkers are still struggling to recover and get back to normal after Superstorm Sandy.
