Councilman Bryan Principe
Councilman Bryan Principe was first elected to the Providence City Council in 2010. He represents Federal Hill, as well as portions of the West End. Councilman Principe was one of two Council representatives on the Providence Redevelopment Agency (2011-2015).
He has served on the City Plan Commission for ten years, and on the West Broadway Neighborhood Association board for six years. Councilman Principe was on the Ward 13 Democratic committee for four years. Prior to his election to the City Council, the Councilman was a leader in the effort to reopen the West Broadway Elementary School, an endeavor that started in 1997 and garnered a major commitment from the city (in February 2010) for a multi-million dollar capital investment that paved the way for the reintroduction of the school to the neighborhood. He is active in his ward, reguarly participating in community cleanups, tree plantings, and neighborhood festivals, most notably the annual Columbus Day parade held every October in Federal Hill.

In addition to having a Bachelor of Science degree in Finance from the University of Connecticut, Councilman Principe also holds two patents. He works in product design and has worked as a design consultant for a local illustrator/publisher. Principe has also worked as a field auditor for a major automotive finance company and has seven years experience in the securities industry, working in fraud detection/prevention, high net worth services and high net worth operations.
A lifelong Rhode Islander, Councilman Principe has lived in the West End since 1997 with his wife and their two daughters, who both attend Providence public schools. The Councilman has deep roots in the ward, his 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. This was his familial home until 1960; his grandparents also lived in an apartment in the house until 1953.
