Edison Mayor Announces New Additions to Administration

Joshi builds team of experienced consultants and veteran government leaders


EDISON, NJ — Edison’s recently elected Mayor Sam Joshi announced impressive new additions to his team this week, bringing into clearer focus his administrations’ policy priorities for the township.


Among other notables joining Mayor Joshi’s administration will be Ray Alcantara as his Chief Administrative Officer. Alcantara brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise of the diverse communities and regions of New Jersey thanks to his time at the New Jersey Governor’s office and the General Assembly, as well as for the New Jersey Democratic Party as Director of Asian American Outreach. He also managed the EPICS program at IEEE, one of the world’s largest technical professional organizations dedicated to advancing technology for the benefit of humanity.


“I couldn’t be more excited to have Ray as a part of our team,” boasted Mayor Joshi. “I am genuinely grateful to have at my fingertips his many years of experience and vast knowledge. He will surely be an invaluable resource as we begin the formidable task of moving Edison forward towards a brighter future for all.”


Former NJ Advance Media reporter Cassidy Grom will oversee the administration’s policy prerogatives as well as its communications with the public and media, and local business leader Pat Coyle will serve as Director of Constituent Relations. Having worked with the previous administration, Coyle has been an asset during the transition to ensure Mayor Joshi and his team hit the ground running.


Rounding out Joshi’s administration is Edison’s former longest serving council member Robert Diehl as Chief of Staff. Former Councilman Diehl is very well-known to Edison residents and therefore requires little introduction. First elected in 2001, he served as council president seven times and vice president three times, as well as commissioner of the Middlesex County Utilities Authority. During his tenure, Diehl was a vocal advocate for the environment and utilized his position on the council to advocate for maintaining the natural beauty of Edison.
