Soriano uses smear tactic to cover up lack of service

Here they go again with the silly election season, where the candidate who lacks substance and a record of service and accomplishment says anything he thinks will help him get elected.

My opponent is falsely accusing me of violating campaign finance laws to cover up the fact that he has done nothing whatsoever to serve Parsippany.

If my opponent feels compelled to file a complaint with the Election Law Commission then he should do so.  However, the public should know that this is part of his mass scheme of attempting to distract voters from his lack of public service.  He has never served on the Council, board or committee.   He has done nothing to demonstrate that he cares about Parsippany or that he has the ability to do the job.  The fact is that I have not been cited for violating any election law.

My opponent is so foreign to Parsippany that he may not know that Parsippany has had a newsletter for decades.   The newsletter has traditionally quarterly and has been sent by all of our recent past Mayors.

Recently, in the interest of cost efficiency, we stopped producing the printed newsletter, opting to put all of our information online.  But, as indicated in the most recent newsletter, many of our residents have asked me to produce a written newsletter.  A segment of our residents, many being seniors, do not have internet access and rely on written communication to be properly informed.

Newsletters contain a lot of useful information regarding our library, leaf bag distribution, municipal alliance, Morris County Clerk services and a register for New Jersey’s special needs citizens.   Residents can also gain useful knowledge on how to report a street light outage.

Interestingly, I didn’t hear my opponent complain about the accuracy of any information contained in the recent newsletter.  My opponent’s supporters hold a double standard: they complain about a lack of transparency in our local government, but then cry foul and whine when we share information with our residents.

I have served this community with honor and distinction as an elected official for fourteen years.  My opponent scrambles to keep  hidden his lack of service to our community – and that is just one thing that separates me from my opponent.

I know that this election is about things that matter to our residents – how to keep property taxes as low as possible while continuing to  increase services for our residents.  My opponent wants  this election is about newsletters and feral cats in an effort to mask his lack of service, experience, ability and commitment to Parsippany.
