What has been your opinion of the Hurricane Katrina recovery effort?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on August 29, 2006
“From what I’ve heard, it’s been bad, but it’s hard to tell when you’re not there. The coverage has really dropped off. I’m sure there’s still a lot that needs to be done.”
“It’s been very poor so far, as far as the government’s role is concerned. FEMA is the name that comes to mind. At one point they even referred to the people as refugees; I mean, these are American citizens. They’ve been promised a lot of things, and I feel sorry for the families involved.”
“I don’t think it’s good enough. I know they’ve had a lot of telethons and fundraisers, but I would like to see more local community efforts.”
“I think that it’s not so good. It’s been a year, and still we can see almost the same conditions.”
