    1. How much did Felix Roque pay HC tv for this promo video? Was it in the last payoff Mr R got to leave him alone in WNY Corruption stories?

    2. This guy is out of control!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
      What happened to the recall movement???????
      I wonder if the street is as dirty as Bergenline Ave!!!!!!!!!!

    3. What a vain move to put a stamp on West New York. Good last ditch effort to put your name somewhere before you are ousted! Enough with the pomp and circumstance… time wasted=nothing done. Enough with the self-praise egoism. Mayor Roque…. what a hack you have proven yourself to be. God I hate your accent!

    4. It is a shame to see and read these hateful people expressing their opinions. Must you be so hateful? Really? so, you don’t like roque, you don’t agree with him, you want to see him replaced, all that I understand. But not these expressions of utter and baseless hate! Why can’t he honor his father in this way? Why is that so wrong? We have to call him corrupt for doing that too? I am not a friend of Roque and have criticized him in the past for some things, but wanting to honor your father in some way, whatever way you can find, is a good thing. why beat up on him for that? I congratulate him for it and Mr. Uribe for reporting the story.
      A.D, you are a racist and bigot for saying you hate his accent. I suppose you hate all people who speak with accents, don’t you?
      I hope all of you have a change of heart, get a softer, kinder, more forgiving and less hateful heart. You can express your disagreement without this venom.

    5. Was Roque’s father ever arrest for medicare fraud???????????????????????????????
      rumor or fact??????????
      do tell!!!!!!!!
      if so, rip that street sign down and do it quick!!!!!!!!!

    6. I have written to Mayor Roque and asked for a list of Dr. Roque Sr.’s contributions to this town that would warrant having a street named after him. I did not hear anyone in the video mention anything about any public service on his part, and, once again, it appears that Mayor Roque is using this town as his personal domain. I am anxious to receive his reply.

      Erica, you may find this very moving and I have no doubt the mayor loves and respects his father, but don’t you see how inappropriate it is for a public official to use public property for a personal tribute to his father?

    7. IS MAYOR ROQUE NUTS NAMING A STREET AFTER HIS DAD , NOT EVEN I WOULD DO SUCH A STUPID THING LIKE THAT.I GUESS ITS THE LAST THING ROQUE DOES IN WEST NEW YORK BEFORE HIM OR HIS SON GOES TO JAIL. DID ALBIO SIRES APPROVE THIS STREET NAMING, IT SHOULD BE NAMED AFTER THE LATE ANTHONY DEFINO. BEST WISHES NICK
