The swearing-in will take place in City Council chambers on Monday at 10 a.m.

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The latest group of governmental leaders will be inaugurated on Monday.

The city has set its inauguration for Monday, Jan. 6 at 10 a.m. in the City Council chambers. Mayor Daniel Bianchi will be sworn in for his second term and the City Council and School Committee will be sworn in with new members.

Lisa Tully will join the City Council after defeating Christine Yon in Ward 1 by a 565-480. Nicholas Caccamo joins as a Ward 3 representative after beating Richard Latura 1,013 - 308. Kathleen Amuso joins as an At Large councilor after reeling in the third most votes for the seat.

Those three join Ward 1 Councilor Kevin Morandi; Ward 4 Councilor Christopher Connell; Ward 5 Councilor Jonathan Lothrop; Ward 6 Councilor John Krol; Ward 7 Councilor Anthony Simonelli and At Large Councilors Churchill Cotton, Melissa Mazzeo and Barry Clairmont to make up the new council.

Mazzeo was the top voter getting for the council and many expect her to take over as council president - filling the shoes of Kevin Sherman, who did not run for reelection.

For School Committee, Katherine Yon, Daniel Elias, Anthony Riello, Cynthia Taylor, Pamela Farron and Joshua Cutler will be sworn in after winning the six open seats on that board. The School Committee is being sworn in with the City Council for the first time, as was included in the recently passed Charter.

Bianchi will be taking the oath again after running unopposed. After his two-year term, the position will become a four-year post because of the new charter.

The inauguration ceremony is expected to last two hours and the city is advising residents who have to conduct business at City Hall to plan around the event.
