To say that the utility companies have done an inadequate job of restoring service to the residents of Morris County would be a great understatement. Are we angry? You bet we are! But as your friends and neighbors, it is much more than that. Rather, we are sad, dismayed and frightened for our residents and those in other communities that have been impacted by the storm; especially those that have been displaced and forced to do without heat while combatting freezing temperatures and not being provided with any reliable answers to when their lives will be restored. We are also frustrated about the lack of expedient and competent response by utility companies to our needs during this tragic storm event. Not being able to restore power within…

The township's lawyer says there are many steps that must be taken to participate in the special council election coming in November.
Questions continue to swirl in the township over what took many by surprise: that the Township Council seat just filled by appointee James Vigilante is up for municipal election in the fall. Though he addressed some questions last week, Town Attorney John Inglesino told Patch that given the number of people still asking him for clarification, he pursued more research to ensure that those charged with nominating candidates to fill the seat between November of this year and its expiration date, December 2013—and anyone interested in launching a run—are fully and accurately informed well before the election's filing dates. Inglesino offered his answers in the form of a memorandum addressed to Nicole C. Green and Michael Soriano, the …

Parsippany councilman sworn in Tuesday night as newest Morris County Freeholder.
Tuesday night was bittersweet for Parsippany-Troy Hills Township Councilman John Cesaro, who was sworn in as the newest member of the Morris County Board of Chosen Freeholders, effectively ending his term as a member of the Township Council. Cesaro, who served for six-and-a-half years on the council, had a chance to address the public and his fellow council members at the meeting, which took place before the freeholders were scheduled to convene. “It has definitely been a pleasure working with everyone here and, of course, with the past council people I have worked with,” Cesaro said. “To the people of Parsippany, hopefully there is no challenge from the floor in about an hour at the (freeholders’) convention. If there is none, I will be …

Special convention elected Cesaro to fill seat vacated by Gene Feyl, who now heads Highlands Council.
John Cesaro, of Parsippany, the top vote-getter in last week's Republican primary for Morris County freeholder was sworn in Tuesday as the newest member of the board. Cesaro was elected by acclaim by a special Republican convention called to fill the open seat on the freeholder board vacated by Gene Feyl, who in May was named executive director of the Highland Council. Following his election to the freeholder board, Cesaro announced he had resigned his seat on the Parsippany Township Council. His first freeholder meeting was Wednesday. Cesaro will fill the remainder of Feyl’s term until the end of the year, and if elected in November, would begin serving a new three-year term in January. Cesaro was nominated for the position by his running…

Local Republicans said party unity is the reason for the Cesaro ticket sweep.
State Sen. Joseph Pennacchio, 26th District Asm. Jay Webber, Mayor James Barberio and other area Republican leaders gathered Tuesday night at the old Rescue and Recovery building on Centerton Drive for a necessary Election Day ritual: counting the votes. Just a little over an hour past the 8 p.m. poll closing, the count was in. Parsippany Councilman and freeholder candidate John Cesaro and his ticketmates former Washington Township Councilman John Krickus and former Mount Olive Mayor David Scapicchio easily bested their challengers for the GOP nomination, among them incumbent Freeholder William Chegwidden. Township-wide victories were also evident for presidential hopeful Mitt Romney, U.S. Senate candidate Joe Kyrillos and General Assembly…

Councilman John Cesaro hopes for the best on Election Day.
The gymnasium at Eastlake Elementary School is practically empty, save for a couple of voting booths, two poll workers and Parsippany Town Council member John Cesaro. The councilman is there to cast what will be only the day's 44th Republican primary election vote at the school. Chances are he cast that ballot for his own campaign for a seat on the Morris County Board of Freeholders. "I'm just trying to stay busy today," Cesaro said, noting that he did some paperwork for his law practice and noshed on a giant hoagie. "Tomorrow we start a healthier diet." The councilman said he'd wished for a larger turnout. "I guess all the excitement will be for the general [election in November]," he said. "I hope I'm involved in it." In order to qualify…
