Letter to the Letter: “Infrastructure Week” Not a Joke

parsippany focus
Dear Editor: Hallelujah - it’s finally “Infrastructure week”! Everyone says that a bit tongue-in-cheek these days as if it’s some kind of joke. Why?  I’ll get to that in a minute. Last week the House corralled the votes to pass the initial $1trillion dollar bipartisan Infrastructure package. As...

Letter to the Editor: Does the “Big Lie” Matter in Your Hometown

parsippany focus
Dear Editor: Sometime in 2005, I was attending a Spaghetti Dinner fundraiser at St. Christopher’s church. Since it was a well-attended event it was not surprising to see politicians campaigning casually among the attendees given it was also an election year. Among them was Mike...

Letter to the Editor: Truths about the 2021 Township Budget

parsippany focus
Dear Editor: The Mayoral campaign is heating up, and along with it, distortions and half-truths become the norm. I would normally just endorse Barberio, Musella, and Neglia as the best candidates to restore fiscal responsibility to Parsippany. However, the Mayor is blaming everyone except himself...

Letter to the Editor: Parsippany’s Best Mayor

Letter to the Editor: Herbig Actions Should Make all of us Concerned

Letter to the Editor: Justin Musella will be an Asset to Township Council

parsippany focus

Letter to the Editor: The Biggest Friend to the Indian Community: Justin Musella

Letter to the Editor: Opinion on the Legality of Abortion

parsippany focus
Dear Editor: As it stands today, the legality of abortion is one of the most hotly debated issues in American politics. One side finds legalizing abortion to be the legalization of murdering humans, and some find abortion to be against their faith, while the other...

Letter to the Editor: The Knoll Country Club is a Disaster

parsippany focus

Letter to the Editor: On the Delayed Budget Parsippany Who is Responsible Council or Mayor, Is it Really a Crisis or a Fabrication? 

parsippany focus
Dear Editor: Can not help to think, the Budget is being used as a mechanism to impede the Soriano Administration. Why has not the municipal budget been approved? Ask the republican council. The town is still functioning; and at least we stopped raiding the water/sewer surplus...

Letter to the Editor: Soriano’s Facebook Shenanigans

parsippany focus
Dear Editor: I am old enough to remember the controversy during the previous mayoral election that began with the misuse of government money by our former mayor, Jamie Barberio, and that ridiculous mailer sent out right before the election. The criticism that came from the...
