Parsippany Democratic Town Council Candidates Gather at Knoll West Country Club for Campaign Reception

PARSIPPANY — In a display of commitment to their community and vision for Parsippany’s future, Town Council candidates Judy Hernandez, Bernard Clarkin, and Matthew Kavanaugh hosted an elegant campaign reception at the Knoll West Country Club.

The upscale venue was buzzing with energy as supporters, family members, and local dignitaries converged to show their endorsement and learn more about the trio’s electoral platform. Eloquent speeches, compelling visions, and engaging conversations dominated the evening, presenting a unified vision for a prosperous Parsippany.

As attendees mingled, sipped on drinks, and enjoyed the culinary delights, the air was thick with anticipation and optimism. Each candidate took turns addressing the gathering, sharing their aspirations for the community, and detailing plans they intend to implement once in office.

The event also served as a timely reminder of the critical dates leading up to the elections.

By the evening’s end, it was clear that Hernandez, Clarkin, and Kavanaugh had not only solidified existing support but likely won over a few undecided voters with their passion and dedication.
