Parsippany is in dire need of new leadership to provide residents with open, honest and accountable government.  Combining extensive private and public sector management and business experience, Michael Soriano, Janice McCarthy and Emily Peterson plan to shift the focus of the municipal administration away from concern for the political class, and back to the residents of Parsippany.  With an eye towards boosting the local economy to help alleviate the property tax burden on homeowners and renters, their campaign is premised on three basic steps:

  • Ending Wasteful Spending - While important programs such as funding for the Mount Tabor Library are on the administration's chopping block, Parsippany's attorney's fees are nearly double that of similarly sized towns in the State of New Jersey.  This is just one example of incredible bloat in our municipal budget.
  • Increasing Ratables - Dozens of office buildings and strip malls throughout Parsippany remain heavily vacated.  Without businesses filling this space, the burden of property taxes has shifted heavily to the homeowner and renter.  A new vision, built on support from Parsippany's business community and committed citizens, is needed to shift that burden away from residents.
  • Demanding a Dollar's Worth of Value for Every Tax Dollar Spent - Municipal services should be efficient and cost-effective, without concern for the needs of the politically connected.  Value stems from balancing cost with quality to make Parsippany an affordable and desirable place to live.

So it should not be surprising that one such policy has led to thousands of dollars in unnecessary costs and nearly one thousand euthanized dogs and cats in Parsippany’s animal shelter.

    Michael's environmental committment

    With the recent news that our country is pulling out of the Paris Climate Accords and jeopardizing our environment, Michael is committed to standing up for our environment. To do this, Michael will reinstate the Environmental committee that for too long has been ignored and disregarded by the current administration. With the Environmental committee back in action, our community will help make sure that our town is green and doing its part to fight climate change. Michael will also oppose the Pilgrim pipeline as it will put our surrounding community at risk of oil leakages and other related issues. With the environment as an issue that will affect our future generations, Michael is committed to making sure he leaves our children and grandchildren with a clean Parsippany.
