Phillips should resign council seat

September 15, 2013

As I recall, in a previous article, Sussex Councilman Vance Phillips pleads Fifth in sexual assault case (July 18), it was stated that Mr. Phillips is a devout Christian. Given the serious civil charges against him regarding this young woman and as a devout Christian, Vance Phillips needs to resign his council seat immediately.
