The incumbents – Douglas Cabana, Kathy DeFillippo and Tom Mastrangelo – are expected to seek re-election as a team.

“Don approaches every challenge intelligently and pragmatically, and he has helped his Town maintain its unique character, I know he can do the same for Morris County,” said Yates.

Two Republican municipal chairmen, Louis Valori of Parsipapny and Jayson Kohut of Jefferson, are also supporting Dinsmore for freeholder.

  1. Heard half of this list of endorsements are bogus and premised off of lies by Dinsmore. Lying already and hasn’t been elected.

  2. Strong list of individuals that always puts the interest of the public above their own. Don would make an amazing freeholder!

  3. Dinsmore ran the Motor Vehicle commission into the ground while sitting there. Can’t imagine what he would do to Morris County

  4. Everyone knows that Frank Ludwigg and Paul DeAngelo is Louie Valori. Fact is that Valori was a disgrace to his colleagues on his council and a disgrace to the town of Parsippany. Valori raised taxes almost every year he was on town council in parsippany and even went as far as trying to blackmail his own mayor only to team up with him a few years later to only end up failing miserably and allowing democrats to establish rule in Parsippany because Valori is a weak Republican. Valori is a loser

    1. Publius: I believe that the Frank Ludwig and Paul DeAngelo aliases on Facebook are different than the ones on here. I have a feeling I know who the ones on Facebook belong too, the individual posts about politics pertaining to Morris County (not just Parsippany). There has recently been a Tom Gilson posting similar stuff. Here on the globe, I believe the person posting as Ludwigg (notice the extra G) and DeAngelo is different than the one on Facebook, I like the one here personally.

      As far as Lou Valori, thank you for your comments. I am also not Lou, but Lou is a patriot and thanks to the leadership of Mayor Barberio and Council President Valori, Parsippany was able to keep taxes stable while delivering great services.

  5. Frank Ludwigg is little Lou Valori. He’s getting boxed out of Parsippany by his so called buddies, Inglesino and Barberio. Valori has no one loyal to him because ppl finally realize he is part of the problem with the Republican Party.
