Welcome to Inauguration Day 2014, Save Jerseyans. Bridgegate is the backdrop for pundits but Christie core supporters intend to focus on last November’s historic victory as well as whatever else lies ahead in the weeks and months to come.

The day for Chris Christie and Kim Guadagno begins with an interdenominational Inauguration Service at the New Hope Baptist Church in Newark followed by the Swearing In and Inaugural Address at the Trenton War Memorial around Noon and then, later Tuesday evening, the Inaugural Celebration on Ellis Island.

Can’t make it? No sweat. Watch the swearing in ceremony and address LIVE right here below the fold…

  1. Sandygate—a term we started using days before Mayor Zimmer’s revelations—is a scandal about an utterly botched long-term recovery process in the state of New Jersey. It’s about tens of thousands of people left behind, many in life-threatening situations of food, health, and housing insecurity.

    It’s about systemic racial discrimination in the awarding of grants to storm survivors. 14.5% of white applicants were rejected for Resettlement Grants, compared to 38.5% of African Americans.

    It’s about people in mobile homes receiving mixed messages about their eligibility for key programs, resulting in many missing deadlines or not applying at all. It’s about people still out of their homes after over a year, including plenty of people who had homes before Sandy who are now living on the streets.

    It’s about the failure of the state to even attempt a comprehensive survey of Sandy survivors or displaced people. It’s about residents of entire counties—including Cumberland, one of the poorest in the state—being completely cut off from federal funds doled out by the state of New Jersey despite being in the federal disaster area and being home to some of the same kind of devastation the Atlantic coast received. But since they’re on the Delaware Bayshore, they’re not wealthy, not well connected, and pretty sparsely populated, it seems like the Governor felt like he could neglect them without repercussions.
