Bio

Brandon Potter was elected on Nov. 3, 2020, to represent the people of District 16 in Cranston. Representative Potter serves on the House Corporations Committee and the House Health and Human Services Committee.

In his first year in the House, Representative Potter sponsored a new law that permanently requires the state to analyze overdose deaths to help identify ways to reduce their prevalence. He cosponsored new laws that prohibited housing discrimination based on source of income, and to authorize a pilot program to prevent drug overdoses through the establishment of harm reduction centers. He also introduced legislation to expand opportunities for community renewable energy production in Rhode Island, and ensure that at least 35 percent of the new capacity is allocated to low- and moderate-income participants. Another bill he sponsored would add a new tax bracket for the richest 1 percent of Rhode Islanders as an equitable means to generate much-needed state revenue.​ Born August 6, 1984, he grew up in Cranston and went to Cranston West High School. He studied at Community College of Rhode Island and Rhode Island College. He has nearly a decade of experience in the automobile industry.​​​​
