Meet Christina

 

Christina Caracappa, recently retired from corporate America, wants to make a difference in our community, which is why she is a Democratic candidate for a 3-year seat on the Town Committee. Like others in town, she moved to Warren because it’s a great place to raise a family. She fell in love with the town the first time she visited and has lived here with her husband Frank for 2

 

Originally from Greenpoint, Brooklyn, Christina graduated from Pace University Summa cum Laude with a bachelor’s degree in management information systems. She went on to pursue a career in a variety of leadership positions in corporate America: Chief Data Officer, Senior Vice President, Vice President of Information Management, among other titles. In these positions she served as mentor, coach, recruiter, creator of multi-year strategic roadmaps and budgeting. 

 

As the parent of two sons, Christina volunteered as classroom mom at ALT School and served with her son, Michael on the Reading Ministry at Our Lady of the Mount Church. She also taught CCD classes at OLM when her sons were younger. Other volunteer activities include organizing Saint Mary Soup Kitchen events, participating in Junior Achievement as an advisor, and promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion at several global enterprises. Currently Christina volunteers at the Shimon and Sara Birnbaum JCC working with special needs individuals at enrichment events including arts and crafts, karaoke, and cooking.

 

On April 8, 2018, Christina’s life took on an unforeseen challenge when she was hit by an SUV while walking near her home on Christy Drive. She attributes her eventual full recovery to the quick response and professionalism of the Warren Township police and rescue squad who responded to the accident, transported her by ambulance, and took her to an open field where she was airlifted to Robert Wood Johnson. After multiple surgeries, recovery at Kessler Institute, intensive physical therapy, and four months in a wheelchair, Christina eventually recovered from a traumatic brain injury and thirteen broken bones. After a year of intense commitment, Christina was able to fully walk unaided. Her tenacity and passion to completely recover and regain her independence gave her increased purpose in giving back to her community.

 

Now that Christina is retired and her grown sons, Michael and Kevin, have graduated college and started their careers, she believes it’s the perfect time to share her talents and expertise with the town that has done so much to support her and her husband Frank in raising their family. As a Town Committeewoman, Christina sees her role as a servant of the people. “I promise to improve transparency, access information, and assure every voice will be respectfully heard. I’ll ensure access to Township Committee meetings via Zoom for our busy residents. It is the obligation of the Township Committee to be servant leaders, not oracles who make decisions without full transparency and accountability. Every vote I make will be informed by what is in the best interests of the community.”
