Today I biked the length of Pleasant Street on the 4A side of the street. Several Pleasant Street residents pointed out the big potholes and numerous cracks in the state highway section of Pleasant Street, out to the Norton town line. Nobody could remember when the state last fixed the this section of Pleasant Street. Attleboro has done all of the city’s section.
I am going to reach out to State Representative Jim Hawkins and make sure he is aware.
Today ended early with a big thunderstorm at 5 pm. I was on Kellcourt Ave. speaking with Joe about his family, neighbors, and friends. He loves his area and really likes Attleboro. Joe moved into his home in 1992 and according to him, it was one of the best decision he’s ever made. Block parties, a friendly neighborhood, and a great place to raise his family. I liked Joe instantly. He signed my nomination papers, asked for a sign, and then the rain hit us.
A few hours earlier, I met a young woman on Commerce Way who simply glowed. Emily is a senior at Bridgewater State College and plans to be an elementary school teacher next fall. She did her student teaching in Attleboro during her junior year and loved it. The only drawback was the size of the classes which really surprised her. Regardless, Emily wants to come back to Attleboro and spend her career teaching in her hometown. When I left her door, her eyes sparkled again, she smiled and declared, “I love Attleboro!”
Please join us Saturday 9/8 from 10am-12pm as we hold signs downtown. Help us #TyAttleboroTogether!!!
When I left his home he thanked me for stopping by and spending a few minutes. I thanked him as well. We really connected and listened to each other.
