Two West New York youth football coaches, as well as a concerned parent with a child on the team, expressed their qualms with the Hudson County Youth Football League – as well as inquiring about thousands of fundraised dollars allegedly unaccounted for – at last night’s board of commissioners meeting.
Jack Rodriguez, a West New York youth football coach, expressed his discontent with the league West New York is in, the Hudson County Youth Football League, as well as the way the town has handled the program.
While Rodriguez implied that Commissioner Cosmo Cirillo had mismanaged the situation, Commissioner Fior’DAliza Frias and Cirillo both tried to provide clarity on the issue.
Later, Frias implored any parents in the audience with children involved in the football program to contact Cirillo as the town works towards a solution.
A parent with a child in the program also got up to voice his concerns on the matter.
On a related note, another coach in the program said thousands of dollars raised for the team have gone unaccounted for.
