Parsippany GOP Council members running on one ticket

Rival Republican Council members in Parsippany announced they would run on a single ticket two years after Democrats won the town’s mayorship and two council seats.

Councilman Mike dePierro, Council President Paul Carifi, Jr. and Councilwoman Loretta Gragnani will put past feuds aside in an effort to defend their seats from Parsippany’s increasingly-active Democratic base.

“We are running as an experienced team committed to affordability, safe schools and neighborhoods, economic growth, open space preservation, and responsible planning,” the three said in a joint statement.  “With Governor Murphy’s far-left agenda already raising taxes by over a billion dollars and turning New Jersey into a Sanctuary State for criminal illegal immigrants, our community needs Republican representation on Township Council more than ever.”

In 2017, Parsippany Mayor Michael Soriano ousted former Republican Mayor James Barbiero.

Soriano’s running mates, Emily Peterson and Janice McCarthy, won both council seats up that year over former council members, Louis Valori and Vincent Ferrara.
