Phil is back to run again to represent Florida’s 53rd district, south Brevard county, having first challenged for the seat in 2018 in both a hotly contested and rancorous race by the current Representative. Never one to back down from a challenge or the threats made by his opponents campaign team. Phil is ready to do the work to flip seat 53. After the election of 2018 Phil continued his activism both in the community and in Tallahassee, voicing opposition for preemption bills, bills which harm our environment, and bills which steal more funding away from low income housing and the Florida Forever Fund. Phil continues to build a relationship with locally elected officials to help do what is in the best interest for Brevard county and the cities both inside and out of the district. A second generation Florida native from South Florida, Phil moved to Brevard in 1997. Phil currently works as a Medical Device Instructor with Philips and a second job as a patient coordinator at a local dental office. Phil understands Brevard’s infrastructure needs having actively been involved with the Space Coast Transportation & Planning Organization Bicycle Pedestrian & Trails Advisory Committee for over 10 years.
