YORKTOWN, N.Y. – The Yorktown Republican Town Committee has unanimously endorsed Yorktown Heights resident Mary Capoccia for Yorktown town clerk in the November election.
Capoccia has been a Yorktown resident for more than 20 years and has served as confidential secretary to the Yorktown Town Supervisor since 2012.
"For the past three years as the confidential assistant to Supervisor Grace, Mary has been at the front lines of our fight to make Yorktown more business-friendly, pass taxpayer-friendly budgets and the first back-to-back tax cuts, which makes her the ideal person to serve as our next Town Clerk," said Yorktown Republican Town Committee Chairwoman Serafina Mastro.
Capoccia has an extensive record of community service. Both her children graduated from the Yorktown Central School District, where she was involved with the PTA and served as a class mom.
She also has considerable private sector experience. Prior to working in local government, she spent 10 years as a legal assistant at the law firm of Albert A. Capellini and she worked for more than a decade at McGraw-Hill Publishing Company, rising to the position of production director.
"After three-plus years in the Town Supervisor's office, you understand that the primary mission of the local government is to serve its citizens. Having worked in the private sector for decades, you understand that being efficient and effective in achieving goals is paramount," said Capoccia. "I look forward to bringing all my experiences together to efficiently and effectively provide the services Yorktowners deserve."
Capoccia's platform involves bringing a common sense practical approach to the business of the Town Clerk's Office. She states she is committed to ensuring a friendly and efficient office that understands the realities of the small businessperson.
"We must push toward digitizing town records, allowing for electronic filing of application and payments," said Capoccia. "This will not only increase efficiency but reduce waste as well."
"I look forward to a vigorous, open and friendly campaign on the issues," she continued.
