Hernandez Edges Ahead in Parsippany Council Race, Threatening GOP Streak

Every vote counts

PARSIPPANY — Last Tuesday, the Parsippany Council race initially saw Carifi, McGraft, and Kandil leading.

However, mail-in and provisional votes, counted on Wednesday, November 15, brought a significant change.

With 303 mail-in and 211 provisional ballots tallied, unofficial results indicate that Democrat Judy Hernandez has now edged ahead of Adam Kandil by one vote.

Paul Carifi, Jr. 4,642
Matt McGrath 4,568
Judy Hernandez 4,529
Adam Kandil 4,527
Matt Kavanagh 4,438
Bernard Clarkin 4,390

The current leading candidates are Paul Carifi, Jr., Matt McGraft, and Judy Hernandez. This could be the first Democratic win in Parsippany since 2017 when they won the mayoral race and two council seats.  The mayor, Michael Soriano, lost his seat in a rematch with his predecessor, James Barberio.

Parsippany Focus has learned that the Morris County Republican Club will be challenging the results. We will update as information becomes available.
