To my friends, supporters, and anyone curious to find out what I am running for:

Two days ago a couple of my friends asked me if i want to run for election on Attleboro’s City Council. It seems that Julie Hall has just resigned the council, effectiveย Sept. 3, 2018.
I SAID YES…. I WANT TO BE ON THE CITY COUNCIL.
Today I called Jim Hand, political reporter for the Attleboro Sun Chronicle, and told him I am running as an at-large candidate for the City Council this November. I have fallen in love with Attleboro since moving here in 2002. I have worked as a social worker at the Attleboro YMCA for the past three years, recently was appointed to the Council on Human rights, and want to help serve you and our city.
I have a chance now to support Mayor Paul Heroux in his quest to improve Attleboro’s schools, revitalize our downtown area, and bring in new businesses. My priorities are;
1. BUILD A FIRST-RATE SCHOOL SYSTEM, PROTECT OUR CHILDREN, AND SUPPORT OUR EXCELLENT LIBRARY.
2. HIRE A DIRECTOR OF ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT TO REVITALIZE OUR CITY AND DOWNTOWN.
3. SUPPORT OUR EXCELLENT SENIOR CENTER.
4. SUPPORT ATTLEBORO’S POLICE, FIRE FIGHTERS, AND THE REST OF OUR CITY EMPLOYEES.
5. PROVIDE YOU WITH GOOD CONSTITUENT SERVICES.
I want to help the City Council and Mayor Heroux find ways to help our children, seniors, home owners, businesses, and those struggling to survive. Together, let’s join in helping Attleboro thrive!
Please let me know if you want to support my candidacy as a volunteer and/or financial contributor.ย 
I have been a social worker for over 30 years, serving residents of the Attleboro YMCA and supervised foster care for people with disabilities.

MANY THANKS TO THE EZEKIAL BATES LODGE and Brother AJ

Jan and I were deeply moved by the horrifying depiction of the starvation and suffering the Yemenese people are going through. This disaster is occurring without much world-wide attention!

I want to thank everyone who helped put on the Yemen Awareness Event on January 20th at the Ezekial Bates Lodge. It was a sobering on one hand, yet the music and quiet support from a good number of Attleboro residents were uplifting. I heard that $750 was raised to help the Yemenese and Special Olympics!

Congratulations on opening our hearts. I was educated and personally embarrassed that I was not aware of the genocide in Yemen. But I plan to go to Congressman Joe Kennedy’s office soon to learn more about what Joe and Congress are doing to help the Yemenese.

Thank you to Aaron and the rest of the Lodge members who helped us become aware of this suffering in Yemen.

Ty Waterman, candidate for State Representative, Attleboro.

Make your contribution to the effort by signing the petition online.
