Although Philip never lets his schooling get in the way of his education, he has received extraordinary schooling from The Aspen Institute, The Citadel, the Military College of South Carolina; The Fletcher School of International Law and Diplomacy; the Foreign Service Institute; the Marine Corps University; the National War College; the Naval War College; the Sherman Kent School for Intelligence; and Walden University.   Philip is a member of the Arizona Elk Society, the Citadel Alumni Association, the Tufts University Alumni Association, the International City/County Managers Association, the Marine Corps League, the National Rifle Association, and the Veterans of Foreign Wars.   His interests include history, horses, and hunting.

As your Town Manager, Philip looks forward to hearing your perspectives on how to best coordinate the community efforts to:

1.      Revise and enforce the Municipal Code;

2.      Repair and improve the municipal water supply and other utilities;

3.      Repair and improve the water mitigation and flood control system and infrastructure;

4.      Focus Economic Development efforts on the tourism industry, emerging industries, and traditional Arizona industries; and

5.      Improve and develop internal policies to comply with the standard practices of the public administration profession.

Philip Cushman looks forward to talking with you soon.
