West New York Residents, “If I didn’t see it for myself, I would never have believed it!” If you thought the decisions and actions of West New York’s tyrannical government (Roque the puppeteer) couldn’t get any worse you’re wrong! At Wednesday night’s School Board meeting the loyal Roque appointees (Roque’s puppets) to the Board of Education voted to totally disrespect the mandate of the people of this city by voting NOT to officially approve the change from an appointed Board of Education to an Elected Board of Education, which would officially begin the process we voted on by referendum. This, only days after the concerned voter’s landslide victory vote to overturn the present way Board of Education members are selected to serve as your representatives within the city’s educational community. This vote by the puppets confirms what we the residents already know – these individuals are there for themselves and to protect the master puppeteer at all costs.
And, to make the decisions and actions of these puppets even worse, the School Board voted to hire a fellow Board of Education member’s sister. This Board of Education member is none other than Silvio Acosta who as we all know is perhaps the puppeteer’s closest and most loyal friend not to mention Roque’s Deputy Mayor and Confidential Aide. Will this nonsense never end?
On Nov. 5, “We the people” have spoken. Our message offering a better future for our children was very clear and now goes unheard. As residents of West New York, we have come together for a common cause – our children, their future, and a better West New York. We cannot allow this dark shadow that already exists over our city to spread and diminish the light of a brighter future for our children. We need to end this tyrannical movement once and for all. Please, stand with me and so many other concerned citizens living in West New York and coming from different ethnic backgrounds and political affiliations to defeat this very threat to our children’s future and the prosperity of our city by speaking out and contacting Governor Chris Christie, State Attorney General John Jay Hoffman, U.S Attorney General Paul J. Fishman, the Hudson County Superintendent, State Department of Education, State Ethics Commission, NJ State Commission of Investigation, NJ State Office of Fiscal Accountability and Compliance, and any other agency you believe that can help our children attain their dreams. To clean this dirty laundry, we must seek out other cleaners.
