Commissioner FiorD’Aliza Frias is responsible for the Revenue and Finance Department
Commissioner FiorD’Aliza Frias is a true testament of what perseverance and hard-work can achieve in today’s ever-changing society. Born in the Dominican Republic, she immigrated to the United States at the age of eleven, and has served as a proud resident of the Town of West New York for over ten years.
Commissioner Frias studied at Worcester State College where she immersed herself in the study of History and Political Science in order to better understand the way in which governments and elected officials work, both in the humanitarian and utilitarian sense. During her free time, she has served as an avid community volunteer, and she particularly enjoys programs that involve working with children.
As a single mother of three, she understands the plight of parents who have to juggle the responsibilities of raising their children while managing their careers, and this is why she founded Women United to Change the World, an organization that focuses on the development, growth, and well-being of women who are single parents.
Always active in the church community, Commissioner Frias has also been involved in the various efforts to support victims of the most recent natural disasters such as the earth quake in Haiti last year as well as Hurricane Katrina. She has also been involved with the organization of several of the parades that take place during the summer in the state of New Jersey.
FiorD’Aliza Frias is a dedicated and strong-willed individual who has been in the professional sales environment for 15 years in various industries, some of which include payroll, insurance, and merchant services, specifically credit card processing. Always on the initiative, she began from the ground up in the merchant services industry, starting as an account executive and quickly rising through the management ranks.
Later, she was responsible for managing a small business team in the tri-state region for TransFirst LLC, a business partner of the former WAMU Small Business Banking Division. Consequently, she spent four years at First Data, the country’s largest Bankcard processor at the time, during which she held numerous sales leadership roles.
She is proud to serve her community as Commissioner of Revenue and Finance of the Town of West New York.
