Mr. Capodice believes beginning with his time as the president of a local teachers’ association, he has developed a sincere appreciation for the value and far-reaching impact of interest groups in a community and individual citizens, as well as what they bring to the table.  Learning their missions and observing the bearing these groups of earnest and concerned Springfield citizens have had on the community, it became apparent to him that he wished devote more of his passion and energy to this dynamic town which he feels blessed to call home.

Mr. Capodice indicated he has a deep belief in being part of the positive changes he wants to see in his community. He feels he has been the beneficiary of all the wonderful things that Springfield has to offer and is excited to have the opportunity to become part of what makes Springfield a standout community.
