Attleboro's new state representative will host a forum next week on Wednesday on how to keep children safe from guns, sex offenders and bullies. Paul Heroux announced the event at the Tuesday night City Council meeting, at which he also introduced himself to the city's governing body for the first time since defeating incumbent George Ross in the November election.
A notice from Heroux describes the event as "a town hall-style meeting on keeping our children safe."
The notice states, "This is an opportunity to hear from Rep. Paul Heroux about the legislation he has filed as it concerns keeping kids safe, other elected officials' views and to hear from a local panel of experts on ways to keep children safe concerning [guns, sex offenders and bullies]."
The event will take place at United Way of Greater Attleboro (247 Maple St.) from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
