On Tuesday, November 8, voters in the Township of West New York will be allowed to participate in one of the special freedoms we have in our country. Voting gives every citizen the opportunity to express how they feel on various issues and elect the candidates who will lead over the next term in office.
The West New York Childrenâ€™s First Team which consists of Adam Parkinson, Jose Alcantara and David Morel are solid candidates who deserve to serve students, parents, teachers, and concerned residents of West New York.
Adam Parkinson, who is the youngest president of a board of education in the history of the State of New Jersey, speaks volumes as education is a top priority in his life while he is seeking his undergraduate degree from St. Peters University in Jersey City.
Jose Alcantara has served on multiple boards in West New York and has volunteered over 500 hours to diverse campaigns, including the campaign that changed the school district from an appointed to an elected board.
Alcantara is also a student at St. Peters University working on his Masterâ€™s Degree in Public Administration.
David Morel is a Supervisor at NJ Motor Vehicle Commission and a Legislative Aide to New Jersey Assemblywoman Angelica Jimenez, as well as a three-time West New York Committeeman.
As West New York continues to develop future leaders by investing trust and experience in young and passionate democrats, College Democrats of New Jersey is proud to endorse the West New York Childrenâ€™s First Team.
We would also like to thank West New York Mayor Felix Roque who sees the value in ensuring leaders are properly trained and developed to take over when the times comes.
John Bingham – President
