Mayor's Professional Appointments Approved
Among those approved are two new members to the Transparency Committee and two lawyers who are members of the Morris County Freeholder Board.
Two weeks after its 2013 reorganization meeting, the Parsippany Town Council finally took up professional appointments Tuesday night at its regular business meeting at Town Hall.
Mayor James Barberio announced at the Jan. 3 gathering that he would postpone his annual appointments until the next council meeting. And indeed, the list of township professionals was included in Tuesday's agenda.
The council gave unanimous approval to the mayor's picks:
Tax Collector: Terrence Whalen
Township Auditor: Samuel Klein and Company
Special Legal Counsel: Todd M. Galante, Steve Trimboli
Township Attorney: John Inglesino
Public Defender: John Cesaro, Matthew W. Young
Conflict Counsel: Michael B. Lavery
Municipal Prosecutor: Douglas R. Cabana.
Cabana and former Councilman Cesaro are both members of the Morris County Board of Select Freeholders. Cabana has been mentioned recently for expressing interest in taking on fellow Freeholder Ann Grossi in the race to replace retiring County Clerk Joan Bramhall.
In addition, Councilman Jonathan Nelson, the body's new liaison to the township transparency committee, nominated Michael Banko and Adriana Afonso to become members of the panel. Both nominees were approved with unanimous votes.
