Dallahan, Parzych Win Stone Harbor Council Terms

Posted June 28th 2021

Stone Harbor filled two Borough Council seats in its primary election June 8, with the return of councilman Frank Dallahan and the addition of Bernadette “Bunny” Parzych. The electees won full three-year terms.

Dallahan has served on Stone Harbor Council for the past 2½ years and is a member of the Utility Committee and the Natural Resources Committee. In addition, he chairs the Public Safety Committee. Dallahan’s goals in moving forward on Council include continuing to maintain budgeting and focusing on a consumer’s focus on taxes, providing planning for beach and bay conservation, and monitoring zoning regulations effectively.

“It is gratifying to have been selected by the voters of Stone Harbor to represent them for another three years,” he says. “Thank you to all the voters who endorsed my candidacy and who gave me their personal vote of confidence. I look forward to the next three years and meeting the challenges that will be presented to the council. My primary objective is to keep Stone Harbor the special place it has become.”

Bunny moves into the seat vacated by her husband, Ray, after five years on council. She plans to focus on two main platforms: preserving and enhancing the town’s tight zoning code, and controlling the borough budget. Parzych maintains the need to focus on zoning to provide for more open space, increase the side-yard setbacks on oversized lots proportionately to that of the standard sized lots. She will also work to hire a full-time chief financial officer for strong advice to council when it comes to capital budgeting and controlling taxes.

“During my campaign, I tried to knock on every voter’s door,” she said. “I spoke with interesting people, and heard great ideas for the future of Stone Harbor. I thank everyone in Stone Harbor, residents and second homeowners alike, all who hosted yard signs, sent me emails or texts of support, those who prayed for me, and those who voted for me. I am humbled by the mandate that you have given me and promise to work hard for our town. I love Stone Harbor.”

Stone Harbor Borough Council meets the first and third Tuesday of every month with a work session beginning at 4:30pm, and the regular meeting following. For agendas, minutes, and recordings, please go to
