About Me

Effie Phillips

I’m running for Yonkers City Council District 1 because it has been my desire to serve this community for several years. During that time, I have watched, learned and listened to the community with limited assess to make a direct impact.

As the district’s council person, along with my colleagues on the council, I would have that direct impact. I believe that I will be a great advocate for the residents of District 1, and a welcome addition to the council.
