STATEMENT FROM AFGE PRESIDENT ON FEDERAL STORM RELIEF EFFORTS

WASHINGTON – American Federation of Government Employees National President J. David Cox Sr. today issued the following statement in response to the federal government’s ongoing response to Hurricane Sandy:

In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, I commend the tireless efforts of employees across the federal government who are aiding in the response and recovery efforts. The Federal Emergency Management Agency, the U.S. Coast Guard, the Department of Defense and numerous other federal agencies have been called into service to provide relief to the millions of Americans who have been affected by the storm.

In many cases, federal agencies and employees are among the victims of this catastrophic disaster. Federal offices in New York, New Jersey and surrounding areas have suffered damage from the high winds and rain, and federal employees who live in the area are dealing with similar damage to their homes.  Our hearts go out to the millions of Americans who are still struggling in the wake of this powerful storm and to the federal employees and other first responders who are working under difficult circumstances.
