PHILIP BERNS - District 16
Phil’s family made Stamford their home in 1960. In 1988 he married Joanne Giannoulis, also a long time Stamford resident. Their twins, George and Antoinette attended Stamford Public Schools. He is best known for his years of legal work with Stamford’s recent immigrants where, as an attorney, he has fought to help those of us who are the most vulnerable. Phil previously served both on the Stamford Democratic City Committee and Board of Representatives (a total of 10 years). Stamford is at a crossroads on many issues. We need people to question whether the majority is marching toward the right solutions. Phil wants to serve Stamford and District 16 by getting answers to those questions and making sure we think thoughtfully about what is best, not just in the moment, and for our sake, but for the sake of our children and the generations to come.
