At eighteen-years-old North Attleboro High School Senior Patrick Reynolds is running for office.

Reynolds is hoping to be the town's next Selectmen.

"I think I'll bring new perspective to town government and look at ways to solve problems," said Reynolds.

He says he'll work to create jobs for North Attleboro and address budget constraints.

"I think we can find something in the middle, where we find ways to save money in town government so we can put more money into our schools and other things that need it," said Reynolds.

He isn't worried about his age, but it's getting mixed reactions around town.

"Probably a little too young," said John Kelliger.

"Too many kids out there aren't paying attention to that stuff, so I think it's good.  I wish him well," said Sandra.

Reynolds is prepared for voters concerns and is ready to listen to what they hope to see in a Select Board Member.

"I want people to share their ideas about how they think we can create a better North Attleboro," said Reynolds.

Two board member's terms are up next spring.  Member Paul Belham says he is not running for re-election and is supporting Reynolds.

It's still too early to see how many people are running because nomination papers aren't out until November.  The election is set for March of 2014.
