Thanks for visiting the Don Phillips for State Representative,
I'm a conservative Republican however I'm not the product of a political party; I'm a product of the people! I don't see myself as a politician but rather a patriot that's fed up and has stepped up to try to make a difference. I'm for smaller government, lower taxes and less spending on non-essential items. I'm pro-gun (N.R.A. Member), pro-life, a strong supporter of public, private and home school education as well as tourism, veterans and seniors.
I'm recognized by the American Conservative Union as an "A.C.U. Conservative" based on my voting record during my first two years in office. This distinction comes as a result of my commitment to our nation's constitution and to America's core principles.
I fairly represent all the people of District 138; regardless of political party, social standing, religion, race, age or gender. It's my honor to be at the capitol on your behalf.
The 97th General Assembly got back to work for the 2013 legislative session. I was officially sworn-in on January 9, 2013. Iwill represent the people of District 138. The district is primarily Stone County from north to south and the northwest corner of Christian Co. and southwest corner of Taney Co.
Stone County has been my home for 34 yrs. and I have a strong connection with the people here. I had great support from the voters in District 138 in the primary and the general election even though I was unopposed. I'm encouraged by your vote of confidence!
My Legislative Assistant is Rosemary (Rosie) Bogg. Rosie is veteran of many years at the capitol. She is invaluable to me as your Representative! We function as a team to provide the district with a professional level of service that you can be proud of.
