Attleboro Mayor To Resign In Early January 2023

December 6, 2022

The mayor of Attleboro is stepping down at the beginning of 2023.

Attleboro mayor Paul Heroux, the sheriff-elect of Bristol County, plans to resign from his current post at 11:59 p.m. on Monday, January 3, 2023; he is set to assume office as the Bristol County sheriff one minute later.

“Serving as mayor of Attleboro for the last five years has been the most rewarding job of my life,” Heroux said, according to The Sun-Chronicle. “I will miss serving in this capacity, but look forward to serving the people of Attleboro in this new capacity as sheriff.”

Heroux, a Democrat, beat 25-year incumbent Tom Hodgson, a Republican, 51 percent to 49 percent in the sheriff race in the November 2022 general election.

Now that Heroux has announced his resignation date, the city council can set a special election date to replace Heroux; that may happen on January 31, according to the report. An election for a full term as mayor is scheduled for November 2023.

Heroux has served as Attleboro’s mayor since 2018. He first won the post in 2017; he also won re-election in 2019 and 2021. He previously served as a state representative, from January 2013 to January 2018.
