This individual fails WP:POLITICIAN. The claim advanced is that he is notable because he is the mayor of a Romanian county seat. That claim is, however, rather flimsy. To be sure, a few mayors of Romanian county seats are routinely notable: those seats that also happen to be large cities and regional centers (Cluj-Napoca, Iași, Timișoara, Constanța, Craiova). It does not follow that every such mayor is notable: the mayors of, say, Târgu Jiu, Slatina, Vaslui and, yes, Zalău are rarely prominent beyond the borders of their respective cities. With all due respect to Zalău, it's a town of just over 50,000, Romania's 38th-largest city, and not really influential outside a very small radius.

To use an American example, it's one thing to be mayor of Atlanta or Denver (always notable, often influential in national politics and routinely in state politics), and quite another to be mayor of, say, Jefferson City, MO or Pierre, SD (people no one outside those cities have heard of). Not every mayor of a US state capital is automatically notable either, and Zalău is more of a Pierre than a Denver.

In sum, neither Căpîlnăşiu's position, nor the press coverage he has received, which is invariably routine, indicate he is a notable politician. - Biruitorul Talk 14:30, 18 June 2012 (UTC)
