One Square Mile Johnston: A Conversation With Mayor Joseph Polisena

Feb 1, 2017


All this week at Rhode Island Public Radio, we’re focusing on the town of Johnston. This suburb to the west of Providence saw the largest change from Democrat to Republican in the presidential election. 

This morning our political analyst Scott MacKay takes us to Town Hall to talk with Democratic Johnston Mayor Joseph Polisena about the culture, economy and politics of his town. And why he supported a controversial water deal for a proposed power plant in Burrillville.
