Hit and run crimes are cowardice at it's worst. Glad the person hit was not injured badly.

I have good news RC: you've told us you're moving away, so pretty soon, we won't have to hear you grumbling and complaining and making unfounded accusations about the township's leadership. Isn't that great? Here's an idea: why don't you start now. Just pretend like you've already moved to West Virginia or Alabama or whatever backwoods hole you're moving to and stop posting on this forum, ok? Thanksbye.

Sick - you are such a hypocrite but hey whatever floats your boat. I will think of you from time to time as I see the housing values here in Parsippany continue to decline on a year over year basis with the direction things are headed.

RC, do me a favor: find the Patch for whatever town you're moving to, and go post there. If you don't want to be a part of this community anymore, that's fine, it's your choice, but don't try to influence what happens here by spreading your conspiracy theories and hateful rhetoric, ok? Let the people who live here and actually care about the place make our own decisions without your bitter commentary.

Long time Resident --- RC is right. Ive lived here for 45 years and the township is definitely going down hill. If you stopped 10 people walking on Beverwyk Rd., you'd be lucky if 4 of the mspoke English.
