Cappiello Wants to Run Again!
At last night’s city council meeting former Mayor Steve Cappiello announced his intention to run again for Mayor in 2009. The 85 year old Cappiello seemed confident he could do a better job than the guy in the office now, and is looking to make a comeback. Cappiello was a three-term Mayor unseated by reformer Tom Vezzetti in a race made famous in the documentary Delivered Vacant. He later returned to the city council as third ward councilman. A few years back he made a run for School Board that got him over a thousand votes, but not enough to win.
If Cappiello makes another run he could resurrect his 1970’s campaign slogan: “Be Happy! Vote Cappy!”
(By the way, there’s already a Cappiello on the council. Terry LaBruno is Cappiello’s niece.)
