It is a new year that includes a Pittsfield City Council, officially, with a pair of fresh faces.

On Tuesday morning, the City of Pittsfield saw Earl Persip III and Helen Moon sworn in as the newest members of the city council in a ceremony at Pittsfield City Hall. Persip III joins the council at-large, while Moon, who is the first asian-american to serve on the council, will take over in Ward 1. The election was held back in November.
