PARSIPPANY, NJ - Parsippany's new Rotary Club met today, July 23rd, at the Parsippany IHOP on Rt. 46 where a brilliant and forward thinking Regina Egea, President of the Garden State Initiative, took center stage. 

TAPinto Parsippany was one of the new members present.  In addition there were members from the County Clerk's office including County Clerk Ann Grossi, President of the Valori Group, Lou Valori, former Mayor Jamie Barberio and current Council member Michael dePierro.

Regina gave an excellent speech on the state of over-taxation in New Jersey.  One of her primary topics included benefits to public and private sector employees and the costs associated with them.  It is clear, according to Regina, that most people have too much insurance, much more than they will ever need.  This results in overly expensive costs and premiums.  The cost of human relations related expenses leads New Jersey to taking top positions on the top of very unpopular lists regarding business unfriendliness and high cost of living.  Regina explains that the current state of "legislative inaction" is contributing to the deteriorating of our New Jersey brand.
