Uproar in Parsippany

Morris County’s largest town again promises to be interesting.
The township’s Republican committee meets tonight to recommend a replacement for Ann Grossi who is leaving the board to become a freeholder.
One man who wants the job is former council member James Vigilante, but he is unlikely to get it . But look for Vigilante to run in the June primary.  A fellow named Vinny Ferrara appears ticketed for Grossi’s position,

Meanwhile, we are told that when the township council reorganizers tomorrow night, changes may be made in regard to key appointments, Stay tuned.

    another night without sleep, thanks Fred. No hint? BTW Happy New Year to you and everyone else who read this. Should be an interesting 2011

    Can’t think of a better guy or a nicer person then Jim Vigalante. He has served the US, done great work for Parsippany, is successful in business, kind and caring and a great friend for the past 30 plus years my family has known him!

    Well Lisa, maybe you forget that Vigilante was alleged to have given genital herpes to a wowan from Lake Hiawatha. It was alleged to have been settled ($$$) without going to court.

    Vigilante was boorish and obnoxious to the taxpayers who attended and spoke at council meetings. He wore his Air Force uniform to council meeting like it was a Halloween costume. If you recall Viligante rubber stamped almost everything the Democratic mayors wanted. People I’ve talked to say Vigilante’s not wanted as an elected official in Parsippany ever again.
