Meet the Candidate
Christopher Capodice, an 11-year resident of Springfield, has filed his intent to run for the Springfield Township Committee. Husband to Lisa and father to Madison and Christopher Jr., he is a graduate of Union High School, and William Paterson and Walden Universities. He has earned a Bachelor's degree in Communication, Master’s degree in Educational Leadership, and holds both School Supervisor and Principal certifications. Mr. Capodice has been an educator for the last 17 years.
Beginning with his time as the president of a local teacher’s association, Mr. Capodice developed a sincere appreciation for the value and far-reaching impact of both interest groups within a community and individual citizens and what they bring to the table. Learning their missions and observing the bearing these groups of earnest and concerned citizens have had on the community, it became apparent to him that he wished to devote more of his passion and energy to this dynamic town which he feels blessed to call home.
Mr. Capodice has a deep belief in being part of the positive changes he wants to see in his community. Having himself been the beneficiary of all the wonderful things that Springfield has to offer, he is excited to have the opportunity to become part of what makes Springfield a standout community. He stands ready to serve his neighbors and prepared to shed light on those things he believes can be improved upon for the good of all of Springfield.
