LYNCHBURG, Va. – Lynchburg City Council is ready to start the new fiscal year on Wednesday and with a new person on board.
In front of family, friends and city employee’s council members, Joan Dolan, Sterling Wilder and Jeff Helgeson, who were re-elected in May were sworn in by a Lynchburg judge today.
Christopher Faraldi is the only new member and will represent ward four after Turner Perrow decided not to run after 12 years.
The 25-year-old is one of the two youngest council members.
“There’s no young conservative voice on council and that’s something I want to provide. I think it’s a void that’s there and I think a large portion of the city of Lynchburg has a young conservative voice and that’s something we want to offer,” Faraldi said.
Wednesday council will vote to choose a new or keep a mayor and vice mayor.
