The Parsippany-Troy Hills Township Council will continue to have one-party rule.
As Council Vice President Brian Stanton enthused just after the last district's count was read, "It's nice to be a Republican in Parsippany."
The Democratic Vote for Parsippany ticket of Annelise Catanzaro, Janice McCarthy and Tom Wyka earned a very respectable showing in the polling. In the end, however, despite the low voter turnout, the incumbents of Team Parsippany scored easy victories to maintain their seats on the council.
Parsippany Republicans gathered at the old Lake Parsippany firehouse on Halsey Road to wait and watch as the returns came in. While the Democrats took the Mount Tabor district handily, the remaining 38 districts came in solidly GOP.
