Mayor Jay Kovalcik was
appointed to serve on the Rochelle Park Township Committee after a
favorable vote from the County Committee and a unanimous vote from the
four remaining members of the Township Committee to fill a vacancy left
by the untimely passing of his father, Kenneth Kovalcik, the Deputy
Mayor in 2006/2007. Jay has intentions of actively staying involved for
years to come and is currently serving on the committee through 2013.
I am a 38+ year resident, born and raised in Rochelle Park, which gives
me the insight and motivation to enhance the "small town" environment
which I have come to love and cherish over the years. I have been an
active member of the community dedicating my time to the United
Republican Club of Rochelle Park for 10+ years and holding the office of
Treasurer. I have also previously served on the R.P. Planning Board as
an active member.
I have owned a home on Bennett Avenue since 2000 and I am the proud
father of two sons, Konnor and Christian.
Locally, Committeeman Kovalcik serves as the Township Committee liaison
to the: Welcoming Committee, Board of Health, Welfare Department,
Ambulance Corp. and the "Kenneth J. Kovalcik" Oldies Summerfest Concert
held in August each year.
