Attleboro Youth Commission President Adam Tellier created a Facebook page in support of Attleboro mayoral candidate Kevin Dumas.
When Adam Tellier, the newly appointed Attleboro Youth Commission president, created a Facebook page in support of Mayor Kevin Dumas' reelection, he had no idea it would upset Dumas. After reading about Dumas' effort to tell the community that it was a scam, Tellier deactivated the page. What he didn't realize is that his personal page clearly showed he was the one deactivating the page.

"This was solely my decision that I believed …

That company requires a minimum purchase of 5,000 game sets for an order at a cost of $20 per set. Additionally, there is a one …
