‘Bedlam’ in West New York

Roque, Rodriguez fight it out over surveillance cameras following December murder

By David Wildstein, February 22 2019 1:53 pm

In what was described by a journalist as “bedlam,” the latest controversy in West New York is over a $500,000 security surveillance system.

Mayor Felix Roque wants surveillance cameras installed following the murder of a 19-year-old man last December.  But Roque’s opponents in the May municipal election voted down his proposal, according to a report by Hudson County View.

A Roque press conference resulted in a shouting match with Commissioner Gabriel Rodriguez, a one-time ally who is now heading an opposition slate.  Rodriguez will be mayor if his slates wins a majority of the five seats up this year.
