As a life long summer vacationer in Wildwood, NJ, I was inspired by the “Mops for Christie” gofundme.com page published by Kiyle Osgood of Lambertville, NJ. Kiyle was taken back by Governor Chris Chrisite’s comment in regards to the recent winter storm surge flooding last weekend in Cape May County, NJ “There’s been one county that’s flooded in the state. One county, that was Cape May County. It’s the one county that flooded. So I don’t know where, from all over the state, since we have 21 counties where that’s happened. Second, I don’t know exactly what you expect me to do. You want me to go down there with a mop?
As the owner of an e-commerce janitorial supply company CleanItSupply.com and vacationer of the beautiful Wildwood beaches, I reached out to Kiyle on facebook and asked if we could provide $1,000. of mops and ship them to the Governor and then distribute the donated money raised via the “Mops for Christie” gofundme.com initiative to the recovery of the area. I’m confident North Wildwood’s Mayor Patrick Rosenello will find a way to put this to good use. I have family that resides in North Wildwood and surrounding Cape May County areas and I think it’s a good cause to help the homeowners and business clean up.
Then I read on http://philadelphia.cbslocal.com/2016/01/26/gofundme-page-setup-to-send-mops-to-governor-christie/ for the the public apology, “Even if that was a reasonable solution to the shore damage that reminded some residents of what they experienced after Superstorm Sandy, where in the world would Christie get enough mops?” Well, do I have an answer for that. I can supply more mops then you could ever think about swinging. I’ve been in the commercial cleaning business my whole life and can assure you, one would be mopping for a very long time to clean up this storm flooding. In summary, we just want to do the right thing and try and assist the residents in North Wildwood.
