I moved here from southern California when I was 23 years old. Prior to that time I had no involvement in politics, other than being a big believer in President Reagan.

Phil has been an ardent supporter of Susan for more than a decade, believing in Susan, even while criticizing her approach to her campaign during the controversial King County Executive race of 2008.
