Bill Phillips Sworn In As Smithfield District 4 Councilman

W.O. “Bill” Phillips was officially sworn in as the newest member of the Smithfield Town Council this week. Phillips, who is 78, was surrounded by his family as he took the oath, administered by Clerk of Court Will Crocker. He will fill out the unexpired term of Tom Bell, in District 4, which expires in 2009. Bell stepped down in March saying his work and out-of-state travel prevented him from devoting the time and attention he felt was necessary to serve the citizens. Phillips has been a business owner in Smithfield for the past 47 years. Previously, he served two terms on the West Smithfield Sanitary District, and served several years on the Smithfield planning and zoning board. In 1998, Phillips also served on the Mayor’s Advisory Board.
