Raimondo, Navigant CEO to network in Central Falls

October 11, 2011

One thing often lost in the serial headlines about Central Falls’ fiscal distress is how the community has a relatively successful small-business sector, highlighted by such restaurants as El Paisa, Stanley’s, and Taqueria Lupita. And while CF desparately needs a broader tax base, small business success will be highlighted during this upcoming event:

Working to better connect Central Falls business owners with each other and the resources they need to grow, Councilman James Diossa (Ward 4) has partnered with the Rhode Island Young Professionals and Navigant Credit Union to sponsor the City’s first business networking event to be held on October 12th, from 6:00-8:30 pm at Navigant Credit Union (693 Broad Street, Central Falls). Scheduled to appear at the event are General Treasurer Gina Raimondo and Navigant Credit Union President and CEO, Gary Furtado.

“We have so many great small business success stories in Central Falls,” said Councilman Diossa. “This event will bring many people from outside of the city to network with leaders in our Central Falls community and inspired students to share their stories, challenges, and ideas for making Central Falls a more friendly and inviting place to visit and do business.”
