Town Clerk Christine Halloran swore in Vincent Caprio as Republican Registrar of Voters July 22 at Town Hall.

The Easton Republican Town Committee appointed Caprio to replace Krista Kot, former Republican registrar, who was sworn in as interim tax collector on July 8.

Kot replaced former Tax Collector Christine Calvert, who was selected out of 60 candidates for the position of Easton’s first director of finance. Calvert replaced Controller Grace Stanczyk, who retired this month.

“I’m very excited to be able to contribute to the town of Easton,” Caprio said. “I come from a long tradition of public servants. My grandfather and father worked for the federal government, and my uncle is a retired colonel in the army.”

Caprio and family have been Easton residents for 18 years. His daughter, Brooke, 18, who attended his swearing in ceremony, is a June graduate of Joel Barlow High School and will be going to Champlain College in Burlington, Vt. in the fall.

Caprio is a member of the Easton Republican Town Committee, an alternate on the Planning and Zoning Commission, and a former board member for the Easton Community Center and the Easton Learning Foundation.

He graduated from Villanova University in 1979 with a bachelor of science degree in accounting and earned a master’s of business administration degree from Northeastern in 1987. He has been part of the Villanova University alumni recruitment network for 16 years.

Caprio is the executive director of the NanoBusiness Commercialization Association, and in November 2008, he co-founded the Water Innovations Alliance. He writes a regular column for GE’s, Our Water Counts — Water Wise, and is the founder and event director of the Water 2.0 Conference series and an advocate for government funding of emerging technologies at the state and federal levels.

Caprio has testified before Congress and the state legislatures of New York and Connecticut, and he has been an invited speaker at more than 100 conferences.
