trimboli

I was young once. I dug holes
near a canal and almost drowned.
I filled notebooks with words
as carefully as a hunter loads his shotgun.
I had a father also, and I came second to an addiction.
I spent a summer swallowing seeds
and nothing ever grew in my stomach.
Every woman I kissed,
I kissed as if I loved her.
My left and right hands were rivals.
After I hit puberty, I was kicked out of my parents’ house
at least twice a year. No matter when you receive this
there was music playing now.
Your grandfather isn’t
my father. I chose to do something with my life
that I knew I could fail at.
I spent my whole life walking
and hid such colorful wings.

Letter to the editor: Mr. Inglesino, poster boy?

Dear Editor:

Editors Note: This letter submitted to Parsippany Focus was read at the Parsippany-Troy Hills Township Council on Tuesday, February 24.

On February 19, 2015 I once again attended the Carifi court case. To my surprise Special Counsel Stephen Trimboli was there representing the township of Parsippany advising the judge that Chief Phillips was named in a civil lawsuit and hasn’t had time to speak with an attorney – postponement requested. Although from what I understood he had plenty of time before February 19 to do so. The judge didn’t understand why special counsel was needed to be sent.

I ask the town council WHY was Mr. Trimboli there since you voted against his appointment for 2015 resolution R2015-017? I personally asked Mr. Trimboli who hired him to appear on behalf of Parsippany – his response – the township- When I asked who the township was he advised Mr. Inglesnio hired him.
Residents of Parsippany should be aware of what Mayor Barberio and Mr. Inglesino are doing. It is my opinion and that of many others that this has become (I’ll use a phrase I hate) a “pissing match” between Mayor Barberio and Mr. Inglesino against the town council and therefore, against the residents of Parsippany who elected them. (Town Council votes no to Trimboli as special counsel for township and Mr. Inglesino hires him anyway with Mayor Barberio’s approval). This is a slap in the face to the residents of Parsippany and our elected officials (Town Council). It is my opinion that Mayor Barberio and Mr. Inglesino are like children in a playground bullying everyone else. This has got to stop. I ask my neighbors and fellow residents of Parsippany to come to the next council meeting and voice your concerns. We the taxpayers are the ones paying Mr. Inglesino’s salary. For example, Mr. Inglesino’s budgeted amount for 2014 was $420,000. He exceeded that by another $400,000+. He has exceeded his budgeted amounts in the last 4 or so years with Mayor Barberio’s approval. Our town council has not reappointed Mr. Inglesino as township attorney for the last two years only to have Mayor Barberio keep him as a holdover at the expense of the Parsippany taxpayers. Parsippany can no longer afford Mr. Inglesino and Mayor Barberio. The legacy of the Barberio administration will be one of deceit, harassment and intimidation in my opinion.

I end with this. Governor Christie a few years ago gave Dr. Seitz the Poster Boy title for superintendents. I wonder how Gov. Christie feels about his old college roommate being named “Poster Boy” for township attorney’s? I will e-mail this to the governor’s office first thing tomorrow.
