There is no one in Rhode Island more qualified to be Lieutenant Governor than James A. Diossa.

The 35-year-old son of Colombian immigrants was Mayor of Central Falls through some of the worst days in its history: bankruptcy and pandemic, and on the heels of corruption charges from the outgoing occupant of his office. He has brought jobs, ethics, and most importantly pride back to the smallest city of the smallest state.

“Mayor Diossa has led this great city back from the brink,” US Representative David N. Cicilline said. “He has restored public faith in city government, brought in millions of dollars in new investments, and strengthened the city’s long-term financial outlook. Thanks to Mayor Diossa, Central Falls has truly become Rhode Island’s Comeback City.”

Diossa is a battle-tested public figure with administration experience that makes him ready to be our state’s next governor, should he be called to do so. Diossa is a savvy, youthful, fresh face in Rhode Island politics who understands the complexity of the issues we face and has demonstrated transparency and accountability in his capacity as mayor. He would also be the first Latino to hold the position, a huge stride for an underrepresented group in state leadership.
