FBI visits post office and Housing Authority in West New York. Housing Authority Executive Director Bob DiVincent confirmed with HCTV that he spoke with the FBI on Thursday. Some believe the investigation centers around dirty politics associated with the board of education election.

Update 1/30/2014: Freeholder Jose Munoz clarified that at the time this story ran, he could not confirm or deny an investigation, only that he was under the impression an investigation had begun.

    Subject: Neither here nor there? I beg to differ Ure Worship!!!

    Counselor, Judge D’Amico’s conduct today was blatantly discreditable! Of course he knew who I was well before court. (Judge’s routinely review the names before trials for just this reason, no?) & as well as on sight, as I recognized him!
    I was completely taken aback that during this entire time he made no mention of this extremely serious conflict; to recuse himself, until I finally cud “restrain” myself no further & (politely!) called him to task on it! (The proverbial, the emperor has no clothes moment!) Rn’t U (former) Judge (Kathleen) Walrod (of Secaucus municipal court’s) husband???—–(harrumph!!!) That’s neither here nor there!—-I beg to differ!
    I was the thorn in the side of his partner/wife in Secaucus. I filed complaints w/then Assignment Judge Gallipoli & Municipal Court’s Judge Carpenter; Also the NJSCACJC & took a very active/vocal role in the successful “departure” of Judge (Emeritus) Walrod from Secaucus Municipal Court.
    Now I have his misconduct on record too! Yes, I will be requesting a transcript of today’s gruff, hostile & disingenuous remonstrations that this is; “neither here nor there” & then, importuning on U! (my public defender) to ratify that decision when U have no knowledge of these events, what so ever.
    I believe that like a dog w/a bone! he was so blinded by the chance that he cud now inflict some measure of retribution/retaliation/revenge upon me! that he lost all sight of correct jurisprudence.
    He shud join his wife in retiring from the bench!

    Charlie D’Amico, prosecutor for West New York,—–as well as partner and husband—–of Secaucus Municipal Judge Kathleen Walrod, is expected to be named…..

  3. Wayne Cook is a punk! Always was and will always be. Wayne cleaned Albio’s toilets and than he wiped Albio’s Azz. NO DON’T VOTE FOR WAYNE COOK. HE IS A HACK AND A BAD PERSON!!!!!

    • A vote for Wayne Cook is a vote for a good person who really cares about the town of West New York!

  4. All of you people bitching on this page and other social media sites should really take a long hard look at yourselves. We are all here paying attention, not because it’s fun or glorious or gratifying but because WE are ALL political. So stop pretending that you all give a rats a$$ about the children of Wny because your actions speak volumes and you clearly don’t. What u rocket scientists haven’t figured out yet is that you all have one thing in common and that’s to defeat roque. Only way that’s gonna happen is when u put ur differences aside and work together to defeat them all. Until that happens. Felix and Silvio continue to win EVERY SINGLE DAY.

  5. It’s sad how others undermined the selflessness of my father, Wayne Cook. Life long town resident, proud to volunteer at any positive municipal function, and all around go getter that stands up for what he believes in! Willing to lend a helping hand to anyone in need, he’ll give the coat off his back knowing it was the right thing to do. To whom ever wants to rant and rave about him in a negative light, my suggestion is to do in a more constructive manner. Cynic, whom ever you are..do know you sound ignorant, pessimistic, and extremely misinformed!!! VOTE WAYNE COOK!!!!! 2L!!! 2L!! 2L!!! VOTE WAYNE COOK!!!!!

  6. AC crack kills. Seems Daddy didn’t do a good job with you or your sister. Now he wants to be on BOE for our children? NO Thanks! Vote anyone but Wayne Cook people! Not to mention Wayne Cook took advantage of the BOE as a $100,000+ year hack.

    • Are you trying to insinuate something by your first comment? Seems to me your pretty wrapped up on others personal lives rather then solid facts. Again misjudged and misinformed! He did an awesome job actually, single father of two daughters that have college degrees. No need to go another further indepth then that!! Jealous much? Funny you mention his prior salary when his running for a non paying position. I think someone needs to do a little more research before they state their opinions. Nothing personal, just another cynic trying to sink the town. God Bless!

  7. THANK YOU WEST NEW YORK FOR NOT VOTING IN WAYNE COOK. HE IS A BAD CHOICE AND PERSON TO BE SEATED ON OUR BOE. WAYNE IS ANOTHER SILVIO ACOSTA TYPE….

    THANK YOU AGAIN FOR NOT VOTING WAYNE COOK TO OUR BOE!!!!

    • There was a great turn out for my father, being he didn’t waste a single dollar on his champaign and didn’t buy votes!! No need to further discuss how WAYNE COOK was a very close second. You’re negativity only proves my father is still relivent. Your jealousy and envy fueled comments are not. Thanks you everyone who came out and showed support!!!

    • WAYNE COOK FOR MAYOR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
      HE CAME IN SECOND PLACE IN THE SCHOOL BOARD ELECTION!!!!!!!!!!!
      MUNOZ SPENT 20K TO WIN 2 VOLUNTEER SEATS!! LOL WHAT A JERK!!!!!!!!!!!
      IF WAYNE HAD THE CASH TO RUN HE COULD BE MAYOR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
      HE CARES ABOUT WNY!
      VOTE WAYNE FOR MAYOR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
      A GREAT MAN WILL SURROUND HIMSELF WITH GREAT PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!
