I sadly announce the passing of our Mayor, Joe Coviello, on January 13, 2021.
You may not know our Mayor as well as I did, so I want to tell you what a great loss this is for our city and for Northwest Cape Coral. Joe Coviello was a good man, a great family man, and an excellent Mayor.
Every time I reached out to Joe for help with an issue in the Northwest, he took the call. Every time I spoke to him about an issue, he genuinely listened to what I had to say and gave me his undivided attention. He reached out to me unsolicited and asked my opinion on issues that affected the Northwest. We did not always agree on the issues, but his willingness and desire to understand where I was coming from, on your behalf, was reassuring that we had someone in the chair who cared.
With the highest confidence, I believe the City of Cape Coral will adjust to this tragedy as it does to all the issues that come before us. I want you all to know we were in incredibly good hands and our city will continue to move forward, but the sadness of Joe’s passing and the legacy he leaves behind is significant. I will remember him as a man who cared about our city and who always wanted to do what was right for us.
