BAKER: REP'S PLAN TO HOLD MAYOR'S JOB "INCREDIBLY INSULTING"

By Michael P. Norton
STATE HOUSE NEWS SERVICE

STATE HOUSE, BOSTON, NOV. 13, 2017.....A state representative's plan to keep his job in the Legislature while also serving as the mayor of Attleboro is "insulting" to voters and his colleagues, according to Gov. Charlie Baker.

"I think it's incredibly insulting, to the voters and to the mayors and to the legislators who take their job as a full-time job seriously, that he would even consider this," Baker told WCVB's "On the Record" during an interview that aired Sunday morning.

The News Service reported last Wednesday that Attleboro's mayor-elect, Democrat Rep. Paul Heroux, plans to serve out the remaining 14 months of his term in the House even after taking over at City Hall, in part to give his party a better chance at holding the House seat.
