Following a press conference yesterday at 5800 Jefferson St. to promote todayâ€™s Project Medicine Drop event in West New York, Mayor Felix Roque spoke to Hudson County View about the voter fraud court case involving Beatriz and Count Wiley.
Earlier in the week, Roque called on Count Wiley, his main opponent in the May 12 municipal election, to resign.
However, when asked about the legal matter, Roque deflected on the issue, saying heâ€™s focusing on his accomplishments from his first term as election day nears closer.
With Judge Hector Velasquez expected to making a ruling on the Wileys court matter Monday morning, the West New York United team has since retaliated by saying they have notified the FBI and State Attorney Generalâ€™s Office over what they feel is inconsistent voter registration paperwork from Roque for the May 2011 election.
Specifically, the team is claiming that since Roque registered to vote in West New York on February 9, 2011, he should not have been eligible to run against then-Mayor Sal Vega.
Again, Roque took the high road, saying he is focused on making West New York â€œthe diamond of New Jerseyâ€ and wished Wiley would be willing to help him in that process.
