RI Community Thrives Under 1st Latino Mayor

James Diossa has managed to drive growth in his community:

Diossa worked on improvements to infrastructure, got better sanitation equipment, hired more police officers and even opened a tutoring center for children whose parents are immigrants and don’t speak English fluently.

The young mayor also managed to keep the community engaged by bringing an auto show to Central Falls and a monthly Salsa Night in the summer, which has attracted plenty of locals as well as dancers from other parts of Rhode Island.

It’s also worth noting here that Salt Lake City just elected its first female and Latina sheriff!
