Alexis Schuette

Pawtucket City Council, Ward 4, RI

Alexis is an artist, technologist, and social justice advocate living in Pawtucket, Rhode Island. She’s running to unseat a 30+ year incumbent to represent Ward 4 on the Pawtucket City Council. She has proven herself to be a team player, servant leader, and discerning problem-solver over many years in roles at some of the most recognizable technology companies in the country. As a leader in the product management department with Dun & Bradstreet, Vistaprint, and The Grommet, she built and nurtured cross-functional teams that consistently overachieved while also having a great time working together. She began her career managing many of Boston’s most beloved theatres and repairing technology at the Boylston Street Apple Store Genius Bar. She believes Pawtucket is both ready and eager for new, diverse leaders to usher the city into a future where access to technology is, not only important, but critical to the well-being of all citizens. She is also incredibly concerned about the negative impact of climate change that is already taking place on her community. She wants to prioritize municipal legislation to offer more environmentally-conscious waste management solutions and to preserve the incredible natural resources in Pawtucket. Finally, she has seen the devastating impact of the global pandemic and economic crisis on underserved neighborhoods and will fight for affordable housing measures to protect the most vulnerable while new city infrastructure continues to bring in new residents and business owners.
