NORTH ATTLEBORO - Town councilors honored longtime state representative Betty Poirier at the start of their virtual meeting Monday night.
Poirier announced during a recording of her North TV program "Inside State Government" that she would not be seeking an 11th term. She said farewell to colleagues and friends on Beacon Hill earlier this month after spending 20-years representing the 14th Bristol House District.
Democrat Adam Scanlon succeeded Poirier in serving North Attleboro, three precincts in Mansfield and one in Attleboro.
Monday night’s virtual meeting of the town council can be seen in its entirety on North TV’s Government Channel: Comcast channel 98 and Verizon channel 23.
