Mayor
Frank Valenzuela

Mayor Frank Valenzuela was appointed to serve on the Township Committee due to a vacancy created when longtime Committeeman Richard LoCascio resigned because he relocated. He was elected in 2006 and re-elected in 2008 and 2011. He was selected Deputy Mayor in 2008, and served as Mayor in 2009 and 2010.

He had served as a volunteer member of the Planning Board, and as a Township Constable. He also serves as a member of the County Committee in his district since 2003.

As a County Committeeman, Valenzuela was very involved with the mobilization of his neighborhood in their challenge to the South City Grill’s Wednesday Jazz night. He presented evidence and testimony to the Zoning Board on several occasions that were essential for the victory in that court decision.

Valenzuela introduced a resolution at his first work session meeting in 2006 to have a public question placed on the November ballot regarding the proposed county acquisition of the Board of Social Services building on Rt. 17.

This public question sent a direct message to the County of Bergen that this land grab through eminent domain was not supported by the people of Rochelle Park, it would have meant a tax loss of $260,000.

Frank has been married to his wife Davia for the past 14 years. Davia is a volunteer member of the Rochelle Park Recreation Committee. They have 3 children: a daughter and twin sons attending Midland School. The Valenzuela family are members of the Sacred Heart parish.

In addition to his services to this community, Frank was the Code Enforcement Official in the Borough of Closter and Local Housing Inspector in the Borough of Palisades Park. He holds a State license as a Housing Code Official, and hopes to utilize his experience/knowledge in that position to insure that Rochelle Park stays the small town, family oriented community that attracted him to Rochelle Park to raise his family.
