Councilman Michael Correia was first elected to the Providence City Council in 2010 and was re-elected in 2014. He represents the Manton and Mount Pleasant neighborhoods.
Councilman Correia has worked diligently to make city neighborhoods a safer place to live. As President of the Providence Crime Watch Association, he has organized residents to combat crime throughout the city. Since 2005, he has led the Annual National Night Out Against Crime, a rally against violence and crime. He also is a member of the Sixth Ward Working Committee, a neighborhood group that has worked closely with the Police Department to reduce graffiti, vandalism, and other forms of crime. He has supported the Stranger Danger Program for children and the SAFE Program, which teaches practical self-defense to the elderly.
Additionally, the councilman has been involved with a number of neighborhood beautification initiatives, including repairing and rededicating Manton Gateway Park, and planting more than 100 trees along Atwells, Chalkstone, and Manton Avenues. Councilman Correia has worked closely with many charitable and service organizations, planning such events as the Ward Six Community Picnic, and the Annual Toy Gun Bash, an event where children trade in toy guns to receive a gift that reflects a more peaceful way to play and have fun.
Councilman Correia is a lifelong resident of Providence and a graduate of Mount Pleasant High School. He has lived in the Elmhurst, Manton, and Fruit Hill neighborhoods, and currently resides in Mount Pleasant with his mother and daughter.
