James Diossa

City of Central Falls, Rhode Island

The first Latino mayor of Central Falls, James A. Diossa is now serving his second term, and since 2012 has been restoring honest governance, fiscal sustainability, and civic pride to Central Falls.

Prior to being elected mayor, Diossa served on the City Council, where he saved the town’s only post office, kept the town’s public library open, and made council meetings more accessible to the public.
