Despite stating indifference last week, Mayor Felix Roque opposes elected school board via flyers

Despite stating indifference last week, Mayor Felix Roque opposes elected school board via flyers. Door hangers distributed across West New York, paid for by Roque’s re-election campaign, urge voters to vote no for an elected school board.

  1. Clearly, Roque doesn’t know what he believes in until Acosta tells him. Isn’t it nice to have a mayor who is controlled by puppet strings and a Board of Commissioners who never have a comment when they are asked questions. What are they afraid of? Only Comm. Wiley, as usual, stated his opinion.
    An elected School Board would enable voters to vote for candidates whose qualifications are known BEFORE the election. It would rid the board of Roque’s uneducated cronies such as Acosta and Vargas.
    Roque has no qualms about spending the town’s money when it suits his illegitimate purposes. Don’t be fooled by his phony rhetoric.
    Acosta helped pay for the Ad opposing an elected school board. Talk about self interest! What a disgrace. That should be reason enough for everybody to VOTE YES. Let’s start taking our town back from the crooks.
    Vote YES for an elected school board.

    Roque has no qualms about spending the town’s money when it suits his own illegitimate purposes. Don’t be fooled by his phony rhetoric. If an elected school board does cost the town money, it will at least be money well spent.
    An elected school board would enable voters to vote for candidates whose qualifications are known, would free board members from political intimidation, and would rid the board of Roque’s uneducated cronies such as Acosta and Vargas. When asked about Acosta’s qualifications a few months ago, Roque refused to answer. I wonder why.
    Acosta helped pay for Roque’s Ad opposing an elected school board. Talk about self interest. That should be reason enough for anyone to vote in favor of an elected board. VOTE YES for an elected school board and let’s start taking this town back from the corrupt politicians.

  3. It is sad that Mayor Roque did not answer the question Wayne asked transparently, as his answer contradicts the “vote no” door hangers that his political campaign have been distributing. As Board of Education member and Campaign Treasurer for Mayor Roque, Silvio Acosta appears to be caught in a conflict of interest that violates the Bi Laws of the West New York Board of Education, which you can check for yourself on their website.

  4. Felix Roque “The Liar”

    Looks you every body in the face and constantly Lies.

  5. VOTE NO!!!! Elected board will fail just like the so-called
    recall attempt.
    The people will see that these issues were a complete waste
    of time and taxpayer monies.
    VOTE NO!!!1

  6. VoTe YES!!!!!

    Its a win for the Parents,Teachers, Kids and 100% for the TAX Payers of WNY!

    Crooks running WNY Town Hall and WNY BOE are scared. The end is coming!!!

  7. Wow clearly learned this move from Fidel himself he talks about how he left Cuba from guys that lied to the public what an idiot hey guys whatever you want I’m fine with it and then hey look that way and he puts it in your ass wow this guy does need to go

  8. I am totally convinced that this lying piece of crap and that old dust ball wannabe mobster are 2 communist with Fidel castro ideologies….Wish we could ship them to back to Cuba…to be with their idol…School board is going through in 5 days and they will loose their cash cow….

  9. The Roque door hanger political statement claims that an elected board would require annual elections and that taxes would go up. If his claim is that annual school board elections would cause taxes to go up simply due to the mechanics of having annual elections is an argument that does not hold water. We have annual elections in West New York already: Governor this year, House of Representatives next year, Mayor/Board of Commissioners(or Mayor/Council if we roll up our sleeves and do what is right for Our People) in 2015, and President in 2016, before the same cycle repeats, starting 2017. And I haven’t mentioned County or State Legislature contests, two of which are also on this year’s ballot.
