Fresno City Councilmember Paul Caprioglio Biography
Councilmember Paul Caprioglio was sworn-in as Fresno Councilmember of District 4 on January 10, 2013.
A life-long resident of Fresno, Paul and his family have lived nearly 40 years in the district that he now proudly serves, with his wife Rhonda, and their children John-Paul and Lauren. After graduating from Roosevelt High School, he attended Fresno City College and then went on to earn a B.A. in Political Science from Fresno State University. Paul then decided to continue his education, earning his Juris Doctorate from the University of Pacific’s McGeorge School of Law.
His professional career began in the California State Attorney General’s Office, ultimately prosecuting murder cases for the Fresno District Attorney’s Office. Thereafter, Paul went into private practice with the Law Offices of Paul Caprioglio.
Paul has served on the Board of Directors of the Central Valley YMCA, Southeast Fresno Boxing Club and the Sequoia Lake Conference. The knowledge and experience that he’s acquired through his community service, coupled with the fact that District 4 is his lifelong home, has deepened his understanding of the issues which affect all those living and doing business in District 4.
Paul’s desire to deliver efficient and tangible results has further motivated him to take a more hands-on approach to remedy the issue of public safety in Fresno. He became trained in repairing streetlights in April 2013, as a way to discourage criminal activity and create safe and secure neighborhoods for residents. Nearly every Friday afternoon, he repairs and/or replaces streetlights, and to date, over 600 streetlights are now shining brightly in District 4.
Paul strives to provide excellent constituent service for District 4, and remains committed to the betterment of the district as well as the community city-wide. Please contact the office if you are in need of city assistance or if you have concerns, questions or ideas for improving District 4 and the City of Fresno.
