Jack Reed endorses Diossa in Central Falls’ mayoral race
James Diossa has landed the endorsement of RI’s senior senator, Jack Reed.
Via news release:
“I am supporting James because I know that he is the right leader to turn Central Falls around and lead it to a bright new future,” Senator Reed stated. “I have walked the streets of Central Falls with him and I trust that he will be a strong advocate for the people of his city.”
Reed said that, “this coming Tuesday is a critical election and I hope you will stand with James Diossa, a candidate who truly embodies the city’s motto of ‘a bright future.’”
“Senator Reed’s endorsement means the world to me,” said Diossa. “I know that, with Senator Reed’s support, we are going to find the resources to create jobs, reinvest in our small business owners and create safe and affordable housing in Central Falls. Together, we are going to bring Central Falls back.”
Diossa is part of a five-person field in next week’s first round of two mayoral votes in CF.
