LETTER: Superintendent selection process has become political in WNY, Munoz says

In a letter to the editor, former Freeholder Chairman Jose Munoz says that the West New York Board of Education’s superintendent selection process has become political. 

Jose Munoz

Dear Editor:

Once again the residents of West New York were betrayed by Mayor Felix Roque hand pick board of education trustees. This betrayal hits the very core of our educational system.

Superintendent Fauta announced that he was retiring in December. Does it not seem logical to seek out the best and most qualified candidate as his replacement. Last night, the Board interviewed two Superintendent search firms.

Instead of choosing either of these firms, the board decided it was going to conduct the search by itself and internally only. Isn’t the future of our children important enough to make certain the top person within our educational community has been selected due to his/her qualifications?

This only mean one thing, those in power already know whom they wish to put in this extremely important position. Hey, why not keep it in the Hudson County Political family. Right? WRONG!

Instead of a national superintendent search, there will not even be public advertisements for this position. A typical superintendent search is conducted over the course of 4-6 months and will instead be done in a week.

West New York has the opportunity to fill this position with the most qualified candidate and not a political crony. We need to tell President Steve Rodas and Trustee Silvio Acosta that their loyalty and responsibility is to the children, parents, and residents of West New York, not to the political power brokers.

Let’s tell the Board of Education to conduct a National Search!

If you want your child to receive the very best educational opportunity for his/her future, the time to act is now. If you don’t, than only you are to blame when cronyism rears its ugly head AGAIN!

  1. Munoz is always full of crap….a manipulator,and a lier.Most of the WNY Board of Trustees where elected by the people not hand picked by anyone.They where picked overwhelmingly by the residents of WNY.So just in his first line you can see for yourself that he is nothing but a lie.If they whee elected how where they hand picked my the Mayor…lol

    • Picked overwhelmingly by the residents of WNY??? ROFL! They only got one out of every 8 votes cast. And it cost Roque $150,000 to get them that much. Seven out of every eight WNY voters did NOT want them.

      And of course they were hand picked by the mayor, or maybe by his people, like Frank, aka Froque, to run. What a fool and a liar you are, Frank, whoever you are.

  2. Let’s be realistic, they could do an international search and they will still pick someone who will just be a yes person. It’s all a farce just like everything else in this administration.

  3. Munoz knows how to make crocket nervous! Three last posters are the same person… Pablo grow balls!!!! stop giding behind Frank!!!

  4. No ONE SHOULD EVER BELIEVE OR TRUST JOSE MUNOZ EVER AGAIN.

    HE ONCE AGAIN SOLD HIS SOUL TO NICK SACCO.
