Billy Horton posted this YouTube video depicting an animated scene in which mayoral candidate Jonathan Nelson has to pay for his bar tab.
Recently, Julia Peterson posted on Parsippany Patch a letter written by resident Pat Petaccia. In Petaccia's letter, she calls out Mayor James Barberio on a number of issues from transparency and the Office of Emergency Management to Waterview and Ordinances.
Nicholas Robert Homyak also posted on Parsippany Patch his thoughts on the mayoral election. He says "Nelson to me would be the right choice and hopefully bring a community sense of being back to a regime that favors large corporate developers over quality of life for all in this "once Arcadian place" called Parsippany, NJ."
A group has been created in the community called BMG - Barberio Must Go. According to BMG, they are a group of multi-parisan residents "trying to save our town from four more years of obstruction and politricks. We believe we deserve better than Barberio's failed leadership, back room deals, secret meeting, bullying and thug tactics and, as his current smear of Jonathan Nelson shows, lack of character and ethics."
Their website is http://barberiomustgo.pw and BMG say that the "PW stands for, if Barberio loses, Parsippany wins."
They choose to stay unnamed. "We operate anonymously under the BMG banner out of fear of retribution and retaliation from Barberio, town attorney John Inglesino and their supporters. It's been a frightening four years and it's time for the nightmare to end." They also operate a twitter account and Facebook page.
