Former Gov. Christine Todd Whitman talks to NJ Today Managing Editor Mike Schneider about the long, hard road ahead for New Jersey as it tries to rebuild from one of the most devastating hurricanes in its history.

Whitman’s second term in office ended in 2001. From 2001 to 2003, she served as Administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency under President George W. Bush. She recalled vividly the impact of the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the state and the loss of lives. The impact of Hurricane Sandy, a crisis in the form of a natural disaster, will be felt for quite some time, she says.
