Letter to the Editor: Residents Voice Concerns Over PILOTs at Community Meeting, Mayor and Council Members Absent

Dear Editor:

On Wednesday, December 13, an estimated 150 Parsippany residents gathered at the Parsippany-Troy Hills Public Library to learn more about the inevitable disastrous impact the recently passed PILOTs are going to have on the town, its citizens, and most importantly its future. 

Conspicuous by their failure to also attend and share the reasons why they plan to support the passage of even more PILOTs at the next Council meeting on Tuesday, December 19th was Mayor Barberio and his four rubber stamp Council members (DePierro, Gragnatti, Carifi, and Neglia).

Why a total disconnect between Parsippany residents and Mayor Barberio and the four Council members and why won’t the above-noted elected Parsippany officials listen to the pleas of their constituents for more information and for more time to review that information?

The answer is obvious. The Mayor must believe that Parsippany residents are dumb and docile and as such would never summon the energy to challenge him and John Inglesino in their year-end push to befriend and reward the deep-pocketed and self-serving developers frothing at the bit to build and profit from being located in Parsippany. 

Well, Mayor, you are as wrong as can be as the articulate, intelligent, informed, and very angry Parsippany residents so clearly demonstrated.  You were wrong to underestimate them and you were wrong to put your friendship with Mr. Inglesino and the developers he represents ahead of your responsibility to serve Parsippany. Shame on you and shame on the four Council members who, like you, also doubted and then betrayed the residents of Parsippany.
