West New York parents held another protest in front of town hall, pleading to get a new bus route for students – this time holding up signs listing the names and salaries of the top administrators at the board of education, including Superintendent of Schools John Fauta.
Fauta explained to Hudson County View that he met with parents yesterday to hear their concerns, but reiterated what he told us last week – that the negatives that come along with adding a new bus route far outweigh the positives.
He declined to comment on administrators salaries being brought into the issue.
Carlos â€œChuckyâ€ Betancourt, a 2015 mayoral candidate who has spearheaded the issue, continued to take Fauta to task on the matter.
While the protests this week have taken place outside of town hall, West New York Spokesman Pablo Fonseca repeated over and over that this was a board of education issue that the mayor has no say in.
Parents have recently expressed their outrage a new bus route for students that have been transferred from Harry L. Bain Elementary School to St. Joseph of the Palisades Elementary School.
School starts on Friday and parents are invited to attend an open house at St. Joes on Saturday.
