Connell, Morandi Won't Run Again for Pittsfield City Council

By Brittany PolitoiBerkshires Staff

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Pittsfield will say goodbye to two longtime city councilors this year.

Ward 2 Councilor Kevin Morandi and Ward 4 Councilor Christopher Connell simultaneously announced that they would not be running for re-election.

The two councilors began together and represented their wards for five consecutive terms over nearly a decade. Both Morandi and Connell find it fitting that they are ending their careers as city councilors together.  

"I came in with Connell," Morandi said. "And I think it's been a real pleasure to work with him and I think it's very fitting that we're leaving together."

"Councilor Morandi and myself wanted to announce together," Connell said. "Because we felt we came in together at the same time, we felt we're going to go out together."
