Erik Brine

Erik Brine, a relative newcomer to the island,  looks to contribute new strategies and to implement an action plan for economic development.  We are a small town and want to stay that way, so we need to address challenges facing businesses in our community by supporting our small business owners and making it easier for desirable new businesses to open. We must come together as a community to support those in need, to put service before self and commit to leaving behind a better Jamestown than the one we found, however and whenever we arrived here.

Randy moved to Jamestown in 1980. Soon after coming to the island, he joined the Rhode Island Department of the Attorney General, where he served for 32 years as an Assistant Attorney General and criminal prosecutor. During those years, he handled many of the state’s most serious criminal cases and devoted his full attention to the demands of his position. Now retired, Randy is excited about finally having the time and focus to give back to the town and family he loves so much. He has no preconceived political agenda but brings to the Town Council the ability to listen carefully and ask the right questions, and the skill and judgment to reach sound conclusions.
