ATTLEBORO, Mass. (WPRI) — Incumbent Mayor Paul Heroux has won re-election in Attleboro, preliminary results show.
Heroux earned roughly two-thirds of the 8,219 ballots cast, defeating challenger Heather Porreca, who took 32% of the vote.
About 28% of 29,429 eligible voters turned out to cast ballots, which is slightly less than the 33% of voters who showed up when Heroux was first elected in 2017.
Contacted earlier in the day, Heroux told WPRI 12 he felt good about the campaign he ran.
Heroux, who served as a Democratic state representative before becoming mayor, received an endorsement from The Sun Chronicle.
Porreca, who is vice president of the Attleboro City Council, was endorsed by Republican Gov. Charlie Baker and the firefighters’ union.
Heroux will be sworn in for a second two-year term in January.
