About the Office
Attleboro was incorporated as a town in 1694 and later incorporated as a city in 1914 when it first elected the Honorable Harold E Sweet as its first mayor. As stated in our City Charter, the executive powers of the City of Attleboro are vested solely in the mayor and may be exercised by him either personally or through the several officers or boards of the city in their respective departments under his general supervision and control.
The mayor is responsible for the daily management of our City Government. This requires the active participation in all matters that concern our planning and development. The mayor provides the general oversight of all budgetary matters along with the development of the annual operating and capital budgets. The office is represented at many city events as well as partaking in State and Federal issues that pertain to Attleboro. The mayor strives for direct communication with citizens on all city matters and has scheduled constituent hours.
