To the editor:
I have lived in Attleboro for 17 years. In the last mayoral election I felt our city was not moving forward, the downtown area had beautiful sidewalks and light posts with only a few new businesses. I gave my vote to Paul Heroux and hoped that the downtown area would be changed into a bustling area full of new businesses.
In the last two years, very little change has happened downtown.
Heather Porreca has a plan to help the downtown area turn into a destination that people want to go to spend time and money. I believe her connections and work ethic will make this plan a reality.
I live in Ward 4A. Every time I’ve come to Porreca with a problem she has been willing to take ownership to solve it. The few times we’ve agreed to disagree, we did it as two polite adults. I cannot say the same for Heroux. The last time I messaged him on Facebook he ignored my message. I want a mayor who will respond to everyone.
As a wife and mother, I want to see positive behavior modeled from the top of this city. We can work together and disagree and we can treat one another as equals without hostility.
