A West New York resident questioned a letter to the editor submitted by Mayor Felix Roque yesterday regarding his re-election, with Roque standing his ground. He pointed to a nearly zero percent tax increase under his administration, a decrease in crime and brand new parks – among other initiatives.
“I’m extremely proud of all the teachers in West New York. We are getting one of the best educations there is in the country,” Roque said when asked about improving the school systems in town.
“What I’m trying to do is empower the teachers to be able to teach, instead of having the politics interfere with the teaching.”
“All I have to say is look at the results,” Roque exclaimed when the success of his administration was questioned. “Zero taxes, crime is down, brand new parks … not bad.”
