West New York parents protest in hopes of getting new bus route for students

5

West New York parents held a protest that spanned between the town hall and the board of education building, pleading to get a new bus route for students that have been transferred from Harry L. Bain Elementary School to St. Joseph of the Palisades school (5401 Broadway). 

Superintendent of Schools John Fauta told Hudson County View the idea is borderline impossible.

Mayoral hopeful Carlos “Chucky” Betancourt supported and marched behind the parents on this issue, telling Hudson County View that the board of education has a lot to answer for on this issue.

Fauta told a different story, stating that this change for the upcoming school year was announced to parents back in February.

Furthermore, he explained that between the current BOE budget and state statutes, it would be essentially impossible to introduce a new bus into the school district.

  1. Poor John Fauta…so many years in the district and so secure with his job and paycheck that he can no longer connect to the needs of the community. Where are the school social workers assessing the needs of the community? West New York has really disappointed on a number of levels because people like Fauta cannot give up his paycheck. It’s also sad to his he has obvious medical needs, maybe beginning Parkinson’s, but he won’t retire until that pension is fat. I hope to move my children out of this county if changes are not seen through as of this school year. In a place where children are supposed to be given priority and attention, the dollar sign has higher status than the concern of all children who have to experience this treatment.

    All you Mothers should all just shut up!

    You all voted for Dr. Mayor Roque and now turn on him?
    You are all a bunch of ungrateful Mom’s!

    What Mayor Roque has done for the kids in this town in 3 years is astonishing!

    Mayor Roque is the best Mayor West NY had or will have when it comes to kids in this town! Just ask Mr Mr Frank Ferreiro now.

    Raise your kids right and than come to the BOE meetings grateful!

    • VILMA WHY HIDE BEHIND THE SCREEN TO SAY THAT. I DARES YOU TO SAY THAT TO ALL THE MOTHERS & FATHER THAT ARE EFFECTED BY THIS PROBLEM AT TODAY’S MEETING HELD AT 5:30 PM AT THE BOARD OF EDUCATION. WOULD LOVE TO SEE YOU THERE.

  3. Viva Cubanito! Hey Roque, why don’t you challenge Emilio Del Valle to the ALS challenge? He is so hot right now that the ice will evaporate into steam upon hitting his empty bald head. That is if you can find him. Hot off the press! Emilio has officially entered the witness protection program. Yep….The FBI has taken possession of Emilio Del Valle for selling his sworn testimony during “The Infamous Roque Trial”. Has anyone seen him around in the last month? Oh no…Bad news for his co-conspirator Manny Diaz! Manny you better have Gina start baking cakes with files in them so you can escape from prison. We hear Manny Diaz and Mr. Joe ” Quarters” Muniz are both selling each other out to The FBI for brokering the deal that changed Emili’o testimony. Stay tuned folks….much more to come.
