N. Attleboro town official resigns after controversial Facebook posts

The town official in North Attleboro who was under fire for Facebook posts some found offensive has resigned.

Paul Couturier stepped down as town representative last week.

He says he was sorry the, "few people" who found his posts distasteful.

A group plans to hold a silent demonstration at North Attleboro Middle school before Monday night’s town meeting.

Organizers are calling for a committee to be formed to review social media policies.
