Mayor Chegwidden, who also serves as the President of the State League of Municipalities stated, “Mayor Barberio is doing an excellent job in Parsippany and his residents are fortunate to have him at the helm. Based on my experience as the League President, I can tell you that Mayor Barberio is one of the very best Mayors in all of New Jersey.” Hanover Township Mayor Ace Gallagher stated, “Mayor Barberio is not afraid to speak his mind and do what he knows is right in his heart for Parsippany. I respect and admire that quality”.  

Hundreds of township residents were there to support the Mayor. Billy Reilly, a 66-year resident stated ” I’m supporting Mayor Barberio because he has the experience to know what to do and the guts and tenacity to do it. Our town made a mistake by electing a Mayor with no experience in 2018 – and we paid for it. Mayor Barberio knows how to tackle the issues to make Parsippany a better place for us all.”   

Mayor Barberio touted some of his accomplishments which include getting the budget under control. The Mayor stated, “I told the residents that we didn’t have a magic bullet to fix the mistakes of the past, but that given the chance, I would correct those mistakes and put us back on a path of sound fiscal footing.  Suffice it to say, we are on track.” Mayor Barberio thanked all who attended and vowed to continue to fight for Parsippany residents. The Mayor added we are controlling costs, increasing revenue, and enhancing services like never before. I have never been so excited to be Parsippany’s Mayor and deliver real results for our residents.  Together, let’s keep the pride in Parsippany growing.”
