    The City Council in Springfield, Massachusetts will have a new president in 2019.

     City Councilor Justin Hurst announced he had secured commitments from enough of his colleagues on the 13- member council to be voted to lead the legislative body next year.

      Hurst, who is in the middle of this 3rd two-year term as an at-large City Councilor will succeed Orlando Ramos as council president.

The record-setting tenure of Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno. The 2011 tornado and its recovery that remade the largest city in Western Massachusetts. The fallout from the deadly COVID outbreak at the Holyoke Soldiers Home. Those are just a few of the thousands and thousands of stories WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill has covered for WAMC in his nearly 17 years with the station.
