Parano heads to Healy 2013 Campaign

The campaign manager for Bill Pascrell’s successful CD 9 general election campaign is going to work for Jersey City Mayor Jerry Healy.

David Parano, who also headed up field operations for Pascrell’s successful June Primary, will take on the role of the Healy campaign’s utility player, he told PolitickerNJ.com.

“Kind of like an ombudsman,” Parano said. “As you well know I'm famous for working with people I believe in. I'm honored to be part of a great team.”

A longtime Bergen County operative, Parano has extensive political experience in local-level grassroots campaigns.  As a founding member of the Real Bergen Democrats, he worked closely with state Sen. Loretta Weinberg (D-37) to successfully elect county committee members, mayors and council members. 

Recently he has worked with the Democratic Committee of Bergen County on the successful elections of the county clerk, county surrogate and freeholders.

Parano joins former Pascrell communications director Sean Darcy and Pascrell media person Steve Murphy as the third campaign player to transfer from Pascrell to Healy for the next election cycle.
