No upcoming events at the moment


PHILLIPSBURG, N.J. (AP) — A New Jersey town council president has been charged with misusing of the county 911 emergency telephone system.

Phillipsburg Town Council President Frank McVey faces a fourth-degree charge of false public alarms and, if convicted could face up to 18 months in state prison, according to Warren County First Assistant Prosecutor Anthony Robinson.

Character is important, and Kennedy, Lewis, and Clark always put Phillipsburg first!

Phillipsburg can do better!

Phillipsburg Democratic Committee is Proud to Announce 

Our Candidates for

Phillipsburg Town Council


It is with enormous pride that the Phillipsburg Democratic Committee announces our full team of Keith Kennedy, Derick Lewis, and Lee Clark for Phillipsburg Town Council.  Kennedy, Lewis, and Clark are three men with one goal. They want to build a better Phillipsburg.  A better Phillipsburg for everyone who lives here or works here, shops here, or worships here.  A better Phillipsburg for you.  A better Phillipsburg for everyone.

They are running for Town Council because the Phillipsburg, they believe in, is not for sale. It doesn't exist to be sliced up and sold off piece by piece. Their Phillipsburg doesn't look like a hollowed-out sprawl of warehouses blocking the waterfront.  It doesn't smell like Diesel fumes from the un-permitted LMR Transfer Station or sounds like the squealing brakes and endless rumble of tractor-trailers across South Main Street.  

They welcome investment, real investments in the town, people, and the sustainable future of Phillipsburg. They support existing businesses and welcome all types of commerce with sustainable development. Their first concern will always be what these businesses bring to Phillipsburg.

Our Phillipsburg is the Phillipsburg with a fully-funded free public library.  A Phillipsburg with recreational spaces that our kids can use without fear of injury; A Phillipsburg whose people don't have to be afraid of elected officials who attack them from podcasts or from the privileged Dias of a Town Council chair.  A Phillipsburg where we celebrate our differences and traditions, welcoming those who want to share their traditions with us.  A Phillipsburg where honesty, hard work, and integrity still mean something.  

In short, a Better Phillipsburg For Everyone. You Deserve Better.  We Can Do Better. 

Elect Keith Kennedy, Derick Lewis, and Lee Clark for Phillipsburg Town Council
