Along with the reopening of the WV Penitentiary, Phil incorporated the first prison riot/trade show and first haunted house inside the walls of the facility.

On November 2, 2010 Phil was elected as councilman at large, and assumed the seat on January 4, 2011.

Since assuming a seat as councilman, Phil has started “Christopher’s Curb Appeal” in honor of his deceased son which has made improvements such as a tree trimming project, hanging baskets on light posts, and music throughout the streets of Jefferson Ave. In 2011 he founded the Uptown Moundsville Activities Committee (UMAC), which made events such as the Easter Spring Fling, Farmers Market, Fall Festival, and a Christmas concert (Spirit of Christmas) in conjunction with a 40ft. Christmas tree available to the residences of Moundsville. In August of 2012 Phil was the key player in bringing a replica of the Vietnam wall to the city of Moundsville, and bringing thousands of spectators from all over West Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and surrounding states to pay their respects to our fallen soldiers.
