Mayor Bill Carpenter



Mayor Bill Carpenter

Bill Carpenter is a 32 year resident of Brockton and the father of six children.  Previous to becoming Mayor, Bill served four years as the Ward 5 representative to the Brockton School Committee. Carpenter is perhaps most well-known as the former radio voice of Brockton High Sports for 17 years and as a radio talk show host, first on WBET and then on WXBR. He is also widely known as a former professional boxing ring announcer, having announced over 100 nationally televised fight cards. 

As Mayor of the City of Brockton for over 5 years, he is currently in his third term. Among many important accomplishments, his administration has established a new economic development team which has developed a long-term vision for Brockton’s future that includes professional planning methods and a modern blueprint that continues to guide the City’s forward trajectory.

Mayor Carpenter’s economic development plan is focused on leveraging Brockton’s assets by marketing a Transit-Oriented Development strategy in the Downtown and highlighting home affordability and the City’s close proximity to Boston. The steady implementation of this vision has enabled Brockton to attract investment of all kinds and lock major development deals; generating over $150 million in new downtown development (of which consists of 250 units of market-rate housing) and over $357 million in permitted construction projects. 

Mayor Carpenter has substantially increased investment in public safety by increasing personnel and adopting 21st century crime-fighting strategies that have helped lower violent crime by double digits. The Carpenter administration has updated the city’s use of technology and made City Hall more user-friendly for all residents by launching See Click Fix and providing new features and capabilities online.

Mayor Carpenter is recognized state-wide as a leader in fighting the Opioid Crisis and was the only Mayor selected by Governor Baker to serve on the Governor's Opioid Addiction Working Group. During Carpenter’s second term, he created “The Champion Plan” – a police assisted recovery program helping those with substance use disorders obtain addiction treatment. Mayor Carpenter has received national recognition for efforts to address the opioid crisis with this program and has presented its success before the 2016 National League of Cities Conference, Harvard Medical School, and Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government. He is also the co-founder of Independence Academy, the state's fourth Recovery School (and only the 43rd in the U.S.) serving teenagers who are re-engaging their education while receiving treatment supports for substance abuse disorders.
