After a full week of tallying votes, West New York voters are still waiting on the official results of their local board of education race, where the third place winner appears to still be up for grabs. West New York BOE

By John Heinis/Hudson County View

According to Hudson County Supervisor of Elections Hilda Rosario, the vote by mail and provisional ballots have still not been certified as of yesterday, adding that she could not provide a time frame as to when this task would be completed.

Ron Scheurle, an outspoken critic of the Mayor Felix Roque administration, stunned the mayor-supported Children First slate by finishing in first place at the polls with 2,578 votes.

David Morel, who was appointed to the board in May, came in a close second with 2,428 votes and according to multiple sources with knowledge of the situation, these two trustees will remain on the board regardless of what the VBM and provisional ballots say.

However, the third and final three-year term on the board is coming down to a photo finish as Jose Alcantara (2,363), Alex Navas (2,362), one of Scheurle’s running mates on the Save Our Schools slate and Board President Adam Parkinson (2,350) all finished within just 13 votes of one another on the voting machines.

Both sides have claimed Parkinson and Navas have gained a slight advantage after the vote by mails were counted, but no official tallies have been released yet aside from the poll numbers.

Sources added that they expect to have the final results in by Friday, but there is no guarantee this election won’t spill into next week.

  1. Congratulations to Lorena and Alex who will be the WINNER. Roque destroyed there family by closing down their business and never helping Alex. Roque own team worked against each other Cosmo sent a message that he got his guy elected Morel and left Roque as a BIG LOSER. Cosmo and his team only pushed Morel and left the other 2 candidates holding the bag. Morel president and Lorena Vice President. This was all planned before the election Cosmo is waiting for Roque trial to go BAD and make the move to Mayor. You have to give the young man credit he is very strategic he runs recreation owns the .ba. I predict we will have a new mayor by end of year Mayor Carillo.

  2. Even if he gets convicted, what makes you think Roque will resign? He doesn’t care about what’s best for the town. All he cares about is himself and staying in power. When he first got indicted last year Scarinci announced that he wouldn’t have to resign. No matter what the decent thing to do is.
    That’s IF he gets convicted. He might walk like he did the last time.

  3. At this point the Mail in ballots should be tossed out!.. To much time has passed and political games have tainted them. No Trust those ballots are not faked or mishandled.

    A real judge now would toss em… Its been done many times in the real world outside Corrupt HC..

  4. PEOPLE OF WNY BETTER WAKE UP AND RISE UP SOON. THIS KID PARKINSON WILL BE RUNNING FOR MAYOR WITH COSMO AND HIS ROQUE FRIENDS NEXT MAYOR ELECTION.

    OPPOSITION TO FREE WNY FROM THEIR CORRUPT GRIP BETTER START NOW TO COME TOGETHER AND NOT SELL THEIR SOULS FOR A JOB!
