New Central Falls councilman calls for evening meetings

April 30, 2010

Central Falls’ newest city council member, Democrat James Diossa, is calling for an end to the council’s practice of meeting in the middle of the day. In a latter to Council President William Benson Jr., Diossa states that scheduling midday council meetings “violates the spirit of open and transparent government.”

“This is a working-class city. There is simply no justifiable reason to schedule a public meeting in the middle of the day,” said Diossa.

Most Rhode Island communities hold council and school committee meetings in the evenings to make it easier for average working people to attend.
