Anne Phillips

Phillips said the size of Garvies Point and the huge tax breaks for it helped inspire her to get involved in politics. The volume and density of the residential housing theyre starting to build is very out of character not only with Glen Cove but the North Shore of Long Island in general, she said, referring to high-density developments in the city. Tax breaks may sometimes be appropriate, but the number and size of them seems to be snowballing out of control, she said. We have to start thinking about the long-term effects on the city as you continue to do this. It shouldnt be something thats expected but analyzed on a case-by-case basis.

Phillips, 46, is running on the Democratic, Working Families and Womens Equality lines. Phillips works in tax administration for an accounting firm and is president of Glen Cove City Schools special education PTA. The Glen Cove native received a bachelors degree in international politics from Penn State University. Phillips is one of 105 plaintiffs in a lawsuit seeking to block the construction of the Garvies Point waterfront development. She has two children.
