Unopposed and low voter turn-out; they call it democracy. All citizens at age 18 should be requiredRead More by law to register to vote. If a amount of voters don't do so; then elections should be invalid..

Our representative to the House in Washington in office 20 plus years, no Democrat on the Bd ofRead More Freeholders since the 1970's, high time we get some new blood and new perspective into our elected posts.

Freeholders fail to decide the tough issues on the side of middle income constituents, fail toRead More improve mental health from its Greystone decisions, provide facilities and leadership, and ease the property tax burden on citizens and municipalities.

When I think about the Morris County Democratic Committee, I am reminded of the Washington Generals.Read More One day they'll actually win something. Hope she can turn it around.

Mary Dougherty has been Vice Chair for the past eight years and has worked with the Morris CountyRead More Dems for more than a decade. Her experience at the local and state level has demonstrated her long term commitment to building a stronger Democratic base in Morris County. She has worked to support women candidates and encouraged women to become involved in political training and developed a base for Morris women in business. She is the energy and experience we need to lead democrats in Morris County.

If property rights are so sacred in Parsippany; people owning property but not living here;Read More residents with address or domiciles then there maybe something to it; for instance developers owners property or corporations wishing changes in ordinances or rezoning attempts, well them if you wish to defend a landscape or demise it; being ascent, then should you you heard or not? It seems ridiculous but if were not centered here in our our Master Plan or Higher callings of Master Plans, like the NJ Highlands Conformance to maintain proper land use and sustainability then, what are we talk about? Just winning and election and taking advantage of opportunity rather than the community. We need a higher standard of Politics. Highlands Conformance or soon there will be no Parsippany at all, but corporate sprawl.

Too many of us know, there is something shady, only adherence to the Highlands Master Plan can bring us into the light. No More Planning Board and Hired Attorney alliance with Big Developers but with Grass Roots Science and people who care about our future; Land & People.; not Planning Board and Corporatism.

I demand a public accounting on the ballot fraud issue. I vote by absentee ballot and expect myRead More vote to count. This was not just a local election. I have little faith in politics in this town and here is yet another example.

Regardless of who wins tomorrow, I hope we can heal as a community and support the leaders who won.Read More There is 'common ground' here - and that is, we all want whats best for the future of parsippany. The enemy is not within. We can agree to dis-agree. Some years ago, there was a non-partisan group of people (democrats and republicans alike) who met periodically to discuss issues facing the township and presented their views to the BOE, Town Council and Planning Board - they were very effective. Together, as a group they carried 'weight'. They came up with proposals and solutions that changed parsippany for the better. I would propose that some of our leaders in the township (most who are in private industry and don't want to get involved in politics) re-consider forming a this team - that can take on these issues, gain consensus and present their solutions 'as a single voice'.

The Governor needs to enforce NJ Highlands/Pinelands Land conservation and aquifer, water resourcesRead More for the future. NJ also needs a Post Development Phase of our lives.Plenty of Brown Space exists. The plight of corporate sprawl development threatens our landscapes. Corporations need help in being responsible in effort to curtail litter and trash ; our landscapes are becoming landfills....Public not Private interest why is that so hard to understand? -

Congratulations folks! Its very reassuring to see that so many intelligent and talented people willRead More be taking positions on the Board of Education. I think your election to the board is a major win for the students and parents of Parsippany. Thanks to all the candidates who put themselves out there. For those who will be leaving the board either voluntarily or involuntarily, we are all indebted to you for the countless hours of service that your provided.
MD November 6, 2013 at 12:49 pm
The BOE is an absolute mess. Last night will go a long way toward getting it back on track to whereRead More it was before the Seitz contract threw the whole town into disarray and chaos. The BOE became way too politicized. Politics has no business on a volunteer body that is supposed to be united in improving the education system, not looking for ways to cut from our schools.
joe raich November 6, 2013 at 01:17 pm
I hope that members of the new BOE reevaluate how everything is done. Getting the biggest bang forRead More the taxpaying buck must be the ultimate goal. Can we streamline and consolidate upper supervisory jobs, can we be transparent and free of politics played in the classroom as well as individual board members?
Mayor Jamie Barberio gives his victory speech at Lake Parsippany Club house
Alan C November 6, 2013 at 04:39 pm
@joe raich that Nelson "public mailer" was as ineffective as an umbrella in a windstorm.Read More The Nelson mailer did not "indict" Barberio, but instead proved Nelson and his handlers can't spell. In the mailing "burglary" was misspelled two different ways in two places. So Joe Raich - you (and Nelson's camp) need to learn how to read AND SPELL. Additionally, if a candidate wants to win, he/she should not make the voting public "check on the stated source material", but instead should make a convincing slam dunk case right in the mailer. Just like Jeffrey Kuhl correctly stated, this campaign was won through mailers. And in this mailer battle, Nelson and his camp brought a water pistol which was no match against what Barberio's handlers launched. The sad part of the story is Parsippany loses with another four years with this crook at the helm. In short, Nelson and his campaign let the township down with an ineffective campaign.
joe raich November 7, 2013 at 09:27 am
Y'all get what ya vote for !!! Those who didn't vote lose even more from Alan C's bazooka politics.
LuisL November 7, 2013 at 06:35 pm
Best of Luck to getting rid of this dead weight Mayor who brings back memories of why Parsippany isRead More known for a long standing history of corruption. For my neighbors in the Intervale section of Parsippany we remember loud and clear at the biased so called experts that this mayor brought to the town planning meetings to try to persuade the other members of the council to approve a travesty of a spot zoning change.
Gary Carter November 5, 2013 at 03:35 pm
Mr. We is burg the answer to your questions is NO. Are there still people out of their homesRead More because he Barberio has dropped the ball. Did barberio use our town letterhead task for leniency for a drug dealer who is dealing drugs to our kids in our town the answer to that question is yes. barberio only cares about one thing collecting a paycheck and that's it vote no to barberio

1. Your rhetoric matches the Barberio campaign's precisely. Your diatribe is nothing more than aRead More personal attack, and the entire Barberio campaign has be an unremitting personal attack. 2. You fail to address any true issue, and the issues are the only thing that's important. 3. Whether Jonathan Nelson has a college degree or not is unimportant. Mr. Barberio has none. How Mr. Nelson will govern is the only thing that's relevant. 4. You fail to identify yourself. That partly destroys the credibility of what you've written. 5. Please open a grammar book and try to learn what paragraphs are.

That's what is great about America. You are entitled to your opinion and I mine. Good luck with theRead More future if your guy finally manages to get elected by actual votes.
David Comora November 5, 2013 at 10:24 am
For me it comes down to Ronald Reagan's famous summation...are we better off than we were severalRead More years ago. In my opinion, after watching the actions of the current board majority just over the past year, the answer is a resounding "no". I would encourage parents who were disgusted by the recent reorganization of the middle schools in the midst of the school year and would like to preserve the READING and WRITING program to stand up for their children and begin to vote out the members of the BOE majority... today that would mean voting for FRANK NEGLIA over Mr. DeIntinis. You also need to look closely at the new candidates as two of them appear to have close ties to the current BOE president and you can't expect things to get better, if they are elected. I would suggest you look at candidates like TIM BERRIOS, ALISON COGAN, JOE CISTARO, JONATHAN HEMENWAY, incumbent FRAN ORTHWIEN and GEORGE BLAIR. There are plenty of GOOD choices here that will heal our school system. Its also important to remember how this current BOE manipulates behind the scene. Remember, ALISON COGAN was the next highest vote getter in the last BOE election. When Ms Mancuso decided to withdraw from the board, Mr Strumolo and Ms Golderer decided to skip over Ms Cogan, ignorirng the will of Parsippany's voters, and appoint Mr. DeIntinis. We need to hold these folks accountable and today is the day!
Kevin Brancato November 5, 2013 at 11:55 am
Well said David.
Bob Crawford November 4, 2013 at 05:44 pm
Mr. Gary Carter I would be happy to respond but need to note that of the eleven Carters registeredRead More to vote in Parsippany there is not a single Gary Cater. That leads me to the first reason why I would ask you to vote for me. I always have and always will attach my name to any statement I make or any vote I cast. Unlike Mr. Valori who prefers to operate in the shadows (wire taps and absentee ballot shenanigans) you will always know where I stand. The second reason is that I have the guts to make a tough call even when it means standing alone. Unlike Mr. Valori who eagerly bowed to the pressure exerted on him by BOE President Anthony Mancuso and Superintendent Leroy Seitz I fought not waste your tax dollars by voting against the salary increase. The third reason you should vote for me is because I can bring experience and knowledge to the Council that does not exist. That experience and knowledge is derived from 25 years working in corporate America and seven years working in the government . While we thank Mr. Valori for his service, what he has to offer is already offered by Mr. Carifi and Mr. Stanton and so neither the Council nor the town will benefit from electing another individual with law enforcement experience. Those are three reasons why I would ask you to vote for me. The fourth and perhaps most important is that I have no political scores to settle or political debts to pay. Consequently, I can promise you that I will use the common good and common sense as my guideposts during the time I serve on the Council
Robert November 4, 2013 at 06:15 pm
Mr. Crawdford I did some research on you and you were on the Board of Education that negotiated aRead More four year contract with the secretaries that gave them an 18% raise during the peak of the recession. You got caught signing a Memorandum of Agreement behind closed doors and then got caught trying to covering it up! Mr. Crawford please explain your poor judgment to the taxpayers along with your reckless spending behavior. Your the one that stresses transparency but you got caught lying again behind closed doors! Come on Mr. Transparency explain your lies to the public!
Jim Smith November 5, 2013 at 01:24 am
Here is the winning ticket: BARBERIO - CRAWFORD - PELUSO Louie "the live wire" ValoriRead More thanks for proving my point that you are only out for yourself and a true destroyer of the republican party. Just look at your ranting and raving above [Robert]. Your crazy! You still seem hung up on events that were closed months ago. What do you plan on doing if elected? Wear a wire 24/7 and make more recordings? Who the heck would want to work with you. Your wild 'secret recordings' only resulted in costing us taxpayers $$. For your sake i hope you get elected, because there is NO ONE in morris county that wants to work with you.
