Congratulations Jeremy! You'll be a much better councilor than your temperamental predecessor.

Duff White stormed out of City Council meetings, quit half way through his term citing his lack of accomplishment and continually insulted the people of Ward 5. He was a bad man who was bad for Ward 5 and bad for the city. Congratulations Jeremy! Remember to always respect the people who elected you. Your predecessor thought it was best to trivialize them. Change happens. Embrace change!

I knew that Sarah, along with other TEMPERAMENTAL performances ( ADAM must have missed ) on his short-lived career as an Attleboro City Councilor. Looks like he and Cheri will have to pay for their health and retirement benefits come January.

Think what you will of Duff as a councilor, but to call him or any of our elected local leaders "a bad man" is way beyond politics. Duff is a good person who's heart was in the right place through his entire term. Disagree with his politics or policies -- sure. Fair game. But can we please not go to this next personal level so quickly and easily? It's not fair or accurate with Duff. And I'm sure it wouldn;t be with so many of our other elected officials. Thanks to all of those who give so much of their time to get involved and who give their best efforts. Thankless job.

It is very, very important to Jeremy that we all focus on the future of Attleboro rather than the past. It was my pleasure to work on his campaign and meet so many wonderful people from all walks of life. Let's stay positive and do the right thing for Jeremy and the people of Attleboro. Thank you all.

Sarah, I have kept my mouth shut with earlier posts from people such as mr. Devine, but you have stepped over the line with insulting Sue. I was asked not to comment, but your comment is ridiculous. Sue blais is an amazing person who helped many many candidates. To sarcastically discuss her comment is elementary. Yes it was a "win" in fact with the primaries. Considering the fact that Duff jumped in the race so close to the election. So it was a "win" in the primaries. I was out there for the past 6 weekends with sue doing literature drops for many candidates. She works her butt off every election season, and for you to talk about her such as you did above is immature and naive of the work she has put forth for the good of this city.
