Hi, I'm Frank Capone. I am a family man above all else. I am a proud father of 5 wonderful children that attend the Middletown School District ( Middletown South H.S, Thompson and Lincroft) and the husband of a terrific wife.
I have always been driven to find solutions, provide resources, and foster actions and ideas that create a better community for my family and neighbors. My life, highlighted by numerous charitable works, demonstrates a clear and decisive pattern of bold leadership, compassion, and action.
I don’t just talk about doing things to better society; I roll up my sleeves and get the job done.
My children’s ages span from 3 to 15 years old. That said, my concern for quality education is not just a topic of conversation, but rather a passion. I am prepared to embark on spearheading a movement to ensure every student receives the very best education as pursuant to their optimum needs. This will facilitate all possible opportunities for success in their future. I understand that our most precious commodity is our children. They are the future of America!
My course of study as an undergraduate student at St. John’s University, led to a career on Wall Street. I worked passionately as a Commodity broker on the Commodities Exchange until I retired in 2007. I attended the New York Institute of Finance mentored by Ralph Acampora. Currently, I serve as the Chief Operations Officer of family owned businesses that specialize in commercial and architectural lighting, and janitorial and cleaning supplies. In 2017 I relocated to New Jersey, where my wife Marissa and I felt the environment was well suited to provide a better life experience for our children. Of course, a quality education was number one on our list of priorities.
Moreover, my life of dedication to many charitable causes is demonstrated by my positions as a member on the boards of several reputable institutions. My family and I are the founding members of the St. Jude’s Kids for Kids Foundation. I am a committee member of the friends of St. Dominick’s and a committee member of Northwell Hospital Joseph Maffeo Foundation. All of my actions exemplify an individual who cares deeply about the health and welfare of my community members. The cause dearest to my heart is to foster an environment in which all children can achieve optimum success. I can envision excellent education, in a healthy safe environment, that fosters respect, discipline, and honest debate. I truly believe that the key to continuing the legacy of greatness in America is through the investment in our future generations. I am happily willing to dedicate my time, experience, leadership skills, and resources to guarantee an education that potentiates the investment in all of our children’s education. Additionally, one that is comprehensive, and meets the expectation that all children deserve.
I understand that every child dreams. Consistent care, investment, and education enable those dreams to yield boundless rewards. The aspirations of many of tomorrow’s future leaders have the potential to make, not just our community, but the entire world, a better place for all to live. I am gratefully extending my hand with respect and humility to ask for partners in a valuable investment in our children’s education. Will you join me?
