I have known Kevin Phillips for several years —he is a dynamic and intelligent young man who’s been involved in issues at the local, county, and state levels of government. Kevin is always, without exception, well-informed, persuasive and respectful; above all, he is passionate about finding the best solutions for his community. The Town of Port Royal will face many challenges in the next few years — environmental, economic and cultural — and it’s important for its council to have people like Kevin on board. That’s why I am endorsing his candidacy for Port Royal Town Council and asking you to vote for him on Tuesday, November 5th. Thanks for your consideration.

I’ve known Kevin Phillips, candidate for Port Royal Town Council, for a few years and in that time I have found him to be a professional with a heart for service. As their Town Councilman, I believe the voters of Port Royal will benefit from those same qualities.

I’ve known Kevin for years and I’m thrilled to see him get more involved in our community. He’s energetic about the possibilities and informed on the issues facing the future of the Town of Port Royal. So remember on November 5th, Vote for Kevin Phillips for Port Royal Town Council

I am proud to see Kevin engaged in his community and running for Port Royal Town Council. I know he has taken the time to study the issues before offering himself. I would vote for him if I lived in Port Royal.
