Throughout its 59 years, the Maplewood City Council has seen many faces come and go. 
There have been retirees, corporate leaders, lawyers, community activists, homemakers and business owners on the council. Some of their tenures have stretched past the decade mark, while others served only briefly.
Despite this varied history, Maplewood attained a new first Jan. 11 with the swearing in of Tou Xiong. He is the city council's first Hmong member and its first Millenial.
