Councilman Bryan Principe was first elected to the Providence City Council in 2010, and was re-elected in 2014. He represents Federal Hill, as well as sections of the West End neighborhood.
During the 2011-2015 term, Councilman Principe was one of two Council representatives on the Providence Redevelopment Agency. Prior to his election to the City Council, he was a leader in the effort to reopen the West Broadway Elementary School. This effort started in 1997, and won a major commitment from the city (in February 2010) for a multi-million dollar capital investment to pave the way for the reintroduction of the school to the neighborhood. He has participated in community cleanups, tree plantings and neighborhood festivals. He also served on the City Plan Commission for ten years, on the board of the West Broadway Neighborhood Association for six years, and on the Ward 13 Democratic committee for four years.
A lifelong Rhode Islander, Councilman Principe has lived with his wife in the West End since 1997. They live with their two daughters, who both attend Providence public schools. The councilman’s paternal great grandparents settled in a tenement house at 29 Marshall Street (between Broadway and Westminster Street) after coming to America in the early 1900s. His family lived there until 1960; his grandparents also lived in an apartment in the house until 1953.
The councilman holds two patents, in addition to a Bachelor of Science degree in Finance from the University of Connecticut. He works in product design and in various consulting capacities, including work with a local illustrator/publisher. He previously worked as a field auditor for a major automotive finance company and has seven years experience in the securities industry, including roles in risk, fraud detection/prevention, high net worth services and high net worth operations.
