New Charles City city council member Phillip Knighten seeks to ‘modernize’ the area

Phillip Knighten, a newly elected Charles City city council member, wants to modernize the town; making it more appealing for visitors and locals alike. 


The council received an influx of diversity in this past election. Phoebe Pittman, the other new member, is the only woman on the board. Knighten says it is an honor being one of the first African American city council members, but it wasn’t something he thought about too much.


Knighten urges locals to come up to him at anytime and discuss the issues that are important to them.
