The 1st Congressional District had many areas impacted by Hurricane Sandy particularly the communities of Crisfield, Smith Island, Marion, Fairmount, Deal Island, Ocean Pines and Princess Anne. Rep. Harris provided the following testimony at the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee:
“On October 31, I toured the affected sites in Crisfield and Ocean City with Governor O’Malley and I was stunned to see the evident devastation that some of our communities like Crisfield suffered,” said Rep. Andy Harris. “Last week, I hosted a tele-town hall meeting with over 1,000 residents from impacted communities. I was encouraged by the federal and state coordinated response efforts to date, but we need to ensure that our resources are always made available to those parts of our community most in need of assistance.”
