“Parsippany’s taxpayers are my top priority, which is why I am running for re-election to the Town Council. I pledge to work for you to improve our community and overall quality of life,” said Stanton.
He continued “If you haven’t noticed, the Republican Party in Parsippany is broken. Without a major change in the June Primary it won’t matter, the Democratic Party will soon take over Parsippany.”
