Sandy Survivors Won't "Sit down and Shut up" for Christie

Today was a great opportunity to watch democracy in action. A dedicated group of people from coastal communities went to tell Chris Christie to "Finish the Job," of helping them get home 26 months after Superstorm Sandy uprooted their lives. Before the State of the State Address, they banded with other activists to get the word out to the national media that New Jersey has some more work to do. I got to write about and shoot the event today for The SandPaper which is running the story as breaking news. (Yes, I was next to CNN's Dana Bash with a GoPro...)
