Maffuccio Bemoans “Stale Government” On Return To Pittsfield City Council

Josh Landes
Ward 7 Pittsfield City Councilor Anthony Maffucio

On Tuesday, Anthony Maffuccio returns to the Pittsfield, Massachusetts city council for the first time in a decade. The seventh ward representative was on the council from 2004 to 2010 during the administration of Mayor James Ruberto. Maffuccio – who was born and raised in the ward – secured a political comeback in November’s election. He sat down with WAMC to talk about his vision for Pittsfield and  why he got back into the game.

Josh Landes has been WAMC's Berkshire Bureau Chief since February 2018, following stints at WBGO Newark and WFMU East Orange. A passionate advocate for Western Massachusetts, Landes was raised in Pittsfield and attended Hampshire College in Amherst, receiving his bachelor's in Ethnomusicology and Radio Production. His free time is spent with his cat Harry, experimental electronic music, and exploring the woods.
