Cappiello’s political career began in 1993 when at the age of 25, he was elected to the Danbury Common Council.

In the legislature, Cappiello’s priorities included open space and environmental preservation, support for non-profit service providers, public safety, and health care reform. His legislative accomplishments include the state preservation of 130 acres (0.53 km) of open space land at the Bogus Farm in Bethel, a comprehensive legislative review of the State’s Homeland Security preparedness, and a law that requires all newborn babies be screened for life-threatening metabolic disorders.
