Interview Summary

Mayor George Evans lives in Tuckerton, New Jersey with his wife and son. He is involved in the Tuckerton Beach Association and is a member of the Masonic Lodge. Evans describes how he helped prepare the town for Hurricane Sandy. Evans also talks about difficulties resulting from the storm and the restlessness of the town during the aftermath.
