Philly.com: Obama hugged Donna Vanzant, the owner of North Point Marina. She wore a navy blue hooded sweatshirt with the name of the business that she has owned since 1996. The marina has space for 90 boats and she said about 50 were damaged, but she is still assessing the full impact. The marina serves commercial clammer and crabbers and recreational fisherman and family boaters.
She asked Obama for help rebuilding the marina’s docking system, which she said is not covered by insurance. He told her the people of Joplin, Miss., rebuilt and so will New Jerseyans. “You go back there now,” he said, “and they rebuilt. That’s what they do.”
