Town Supervisor Phil Barrett

Phil Barrett is currently serving his tenth term as Clifton Park Town Supervisor.  Elected in 2000, he served as Chairman of the Board of Supervisors in 2007.  Supervisor Barrett is the longest tenured Town Supervisor in Clifton Park history.  During his time in office, Supervisor Barrett has emphasized a balance of economic development and the expansion of the Town’s parks and recreational resources.  Barrett’s efforts have resulted in the successful redevelopment of the Exit 9 Commerce Area, the preservation of more than 1400 acres of property, several new parks and recreational areas and more than 14 miles of new trails.  During his time in office, the Highway Tax has been significantly reduced, the Town remains without a General Fund Property Tax, the credit rating has been upgraded and surplus savings have grown exponentially.

Phil graduated from Providence College, where he received an ROTC Scholarship.  Lessons learned as an Army Officer and invaluable experience attained through working in the private sector prepared Phil for his time as a government executive.  In the private sector, he most recently worked as a VP for Key Bank.  Phil is a proud Dad and Husband, spending much of his spare time attending soccer practices and games at Shen and Siena College.
