Caporale, Wagoner will join City Council

CUMBERLAND — David Caporale and Nicole Wagoner won seats on Cumberland City Council in Tuesday’s election, according to complete but unofficial results, defeating the only other challenger, retired firefighter John Cline.

Caporale, vice president of Caporale’s Italian Bakery, received the most votes — more than 5,500 — and Wagoner, sales manager at Fairfield Inn & Suites, received more than 4,400, unofficial results show.

Cline came in a distant third with around 1,600 votes.

The city race turned out to be quiet and cordial, though it started last spring as a crowded contest with close to a dozen candidates.

Caporale dominated the primary election, receiving almost four times as many votes as his nearest competitor.

Wagoner had unofficially withdrawn from the race in February, but relaunched her campaign just before the April primary. A fourth candidate, Nick DeArcangelis, withdrew from the race last summer.

Neither of the two incumbents whose terms are ending, Butch Hendershot and Mary Beth Pirolozzi, ran for re-election. Hendershot and Pirolozzi both endorsed Wagoner.

Wagoner campaigned as “an active member of the community and a mother” who is “concerned about the future of our city.” She listed her priorities as repaving city streets, improving public safety, advocating for more effective government and growing the economy.

Caporale campaigned as a local businessman and family man whose family has lived in Cumberland for four generations. During his campaign, he said he would focus on crime and quality of life, fiscal responsibility and economic development if elected.

Caporale and Wagoner — along with Allegany County Board of Education election winners Ed Root and Nicholas Hadley — will be sworn into office on Jan. 2, 2013, for four-year terms.

Root, an incumbent, and Hadley ran unopposed for two open BOE seats. Incumbent Jeff Metz did not run for re-election.
