BOB CAPANO HAS THE STAGE ALL TO HIMSELF --- at least briefly --- in Julianne Cuba's detailed report in the Brooklyn Courier of her interview of the GOP's apparently most media-savvy candidate running for the City Council in 2017
Maybe, this is only the first of a series by the very lovely Ms. Cuba..... However, for at least one sun-shiny day in late August 2017, Bob Capano has his leg up on all his Republican opponents in the 2017 Primary for City Council in the 43rd Council District
You can see it all in "Coutier Life's -- Brooklyn Daily" for August 21, 2017 ( See "Our sit-down with Bay Ridge Council candidate Bob Capano" by Julianne Cuba, 8/21/17, Courier Life's -- Brooklyn Daily [http://www.brooklyndaily.com/stories/2017/33/br-bob-capano-interview-2017-08-18-bk.html]).

".... On connecting with the district’s growing Muslim and Arab community:

I will reach out to all Arab Americans in that community, and if they disagree with me about Linda, then you know what, don’t vote for me. If you want to count going door-to-door, speaking to members of the Arab-American community, I absolutely do....”
BTW, BOB CAPANO DID QUALIFY FOR MATCHING FUNDS FROM THE NYCCFB
The good news is he qualified --- the bad news is Bobby C. didn't max-out.....
