Mayor Roque is responsible for the Public Safety Department
Dr. Felix E. Roque emigrated from Cuba with his family at the age of 11 and attended Harry L. Bain Elementary School in West New York. He joined the United States Army in 1976, and currently serves our great nation proudly as a Colonel and Commander of the 4215 CSH Hospital in Virginia.
He completed a four year Anesthesiology and Pain Management fellowship at Mt. Sinai Hospital in New York. Formerly the Director of Pain Management at Palisades Hospital, he presently serves as Director at St. Mary's Hospital in Passaic, New Jersey.
Dr. Roque is a civil servant in every way. He has served his community as a physician for over 15 years. He provided humanitarian relief to Colombians in Latin America during the 1991 earthquake by donating food, supplies and medications to flood victims at Jimani, Dominican Republic.
Although Dr. Roque possesses excellent leadership skills, his best asset is that he cares deeply about people and their problems. He is well known as a philanthropist to individuals who have needed his assistance in many ways.
As mayor, he wishes to help the Town of West New York to grow during these decidedly difficult financial times.
He represents the peoples' voices, concerns and hearts. Dr. Roque is a firm believer in working hard for and with his constituents. He has a clear vision and a commitment to continue to cultivate a local government which puts people first.
