Former Englewood Councilwoman Lynne Algrant
Phil is incredibly gracious, thoughtful and caring, and is someone who will really listen to residents. He will work very hard for the people of Englewood. He’s in it for them. He listens more than he talks, which is rare in a politician.
I saw him in action. I saw his attention to detail, his ability to synthesize complex issues into digestible information people can understand. He is very smart, he is ethical, he is trustworthy, he works really hard.
The mayor of Englewood has to be a really good listener because that’s who residents go to with their concerns. For me, to have leaders who are responsive to residents, who know how people live, who will listen to people and who understands what local government can and cannot do is very important. I think Phil is a great listener, a very thoughtful person, and he will be a very good colleague to the council members.
