Thursday November 2, 2017 – A well known Erie democrat is supporting Republican John Persinger for Mayor of the City of Erie.
Pat Cappabianca, 84, has served on Erie City Council, ran for Mayor and City Controller, all as a democrat. Now he says he is voting for John Persinger because he believes he is the right man for the job.
Cappabianca says he interviewed Persinger when he first decided to run and really believed in his ideas, along with the facts to back it up.
Cappabianca and Persingers opponent, Joe Schember, served on City Council at the same time. Cappabianca says it wasn’t about not voting for the democrats, it is about voting for what is right for Erie.
