WNY Commissioner Margarita Guzman Endorses Cirillo for Mayor, Joins West New York Forward Team

West New York Commissioner of Revenue and Finance, Margarita Guzman, released the following statement:


“I am extremely proud to support Commissioner Cosmo A. Cirillo, Ph.D. in his bid to become the next Mayor of the Town of West New York.  During the past eight years we’ve served together, it is clear that his drive, determination and passion revolve around helping our residents and moving our Town in a positive direction.   As someone who immigrated here from the Dominican Republic, I understand the challenges our immigrant community faces and bring a unique perspective to the governing body. We need a Mayor that will be accessible to our community and he has demonstrated time and time again that he is more than capable of putting in the necessary hard work for the betterment of our Town. I look forward to working with him and our entire West New York Forward Team during the campaign.”

West New York Commissioner of Public Affairs, Cosmo A. Cirillo, Ph.D., released the following response:

“I am honored to have the support of someone that exemplifies the true meaning of a servant leader.  During the past eight years, Commissioner Guzman has been a staunch advocate for the residents of West New York.  In particular, during her tenure as Commissioner of Revenue and Finance, she has been able to maintain stable taxes and develop budgets that highlight much needed priorities within our Town while also being the first in Town to create a food distribution program to help feed thousands of families affected by the pandemic.  As Commissioner of Park’s and Public Property, she was instrumental in bringing much needed upgrades to many of our parks as well as improvements to our Swim Club which included a brand new children’s splash park.  Additionally, her work with Cultural Affairs always brings our community together in a fun and positive way.  Her experience, personality and caringness are invaluable attributes to the West New York Forward Team.”
