SWEENEY: North Attleborough can be better To the Editor,I didn’t grow up in North Attleborough. I moved here in 2008 as a 37-year-old married mother of three daughters looking for a special place to raise my family. North Attleborough was the perfect spot for us. We were able to quickly integrate into such a welcoming community.For me, it began at the Richards Memorial Library. As a stranger in town with young children, I didn’t know anyone. The RML offered story times and a comforting place to go where I [...]

B. NOBREGA: North Attleborough is worth an... To the Editor,Recently, detractors of the Proposition 2 ½ override have thrown out various numbers to support their case. I’m a numbers person, too, so I spent some time perusing the data in the state’s municipal databank, and I’d like to provide numbers-based facts as well.North Attleborough has a population of 28,965 people and the combined (residential, commercial, industrial, etc.) taxes levied were $48,844,433 in FY2017. With some quick division, [...]

That ideal candidate is Kathryn Hobbs. [...]

GILBERT: Vote 'yes' for the community To the Editor, Merriam Webster defines community as a unified body of individuals; the people with common interests living in a particular area.Lately, we have all heard the word community used over, and over again. Our town departments are necessary parts of our community. When you begin to defund, or eliminate them, you lose pieces of what makes North Attleborough a great community.Please don’t let this happen. Vote yes for the override on April 3. [...]

LEVESQUE: North needs a 'yes' on override To the Editor:I will vote Yes for the override on April 3.As a community, what path forward do we want this amazing town to take? Do we want to keep watching the slow decline of all our town's services (not just public safety and schools, but library, park and rec, senior services, roads, etc.)? Or do we want to make a conscious decision to work together to improve our shared path?I've probably attended hundreds of hours of information sessions and meetings during the [...]

SOTO: Vote 'No' override needed To the Editor,Here we go again! A tax override question is on the ballot once again. After so many overwhelming defeats at the ballot box, one would think that the town would have learned by now that most residents can't afford and don't want to pay more taxes.Many folks have still not recovered from the 2008 economic downturn and its accompanying recession. Those who lost their good paying jobs are still unemployed or have had to settle for lower paying or part-time jobs. [...]

I feel all of North Attleboro's residents deserve a certain quality of critical services and [...]
