Being actively involved in District 14 neighborhood leadership roles since 2000, Philip Kingston was elected to the Dallas City Council on June 24, 2013, and is serving his 3rd term representing Council District 14, which includes Downtown Dallas, Uptown, historic East Dallas, Turtle Creek, and Oak Lawn.
In 2017, Philip won reelection easily despite being opposed by an unprecedented PAC organized by and funded by the Mayor and his supporters. It was the most expensive race in District 14 history, and Philip won despite being massively outspent.
Philip has taken on some of the city's toughest challenges. As the only freshman committee chair, he led a pioneering study of comprehensive Arts funding in Dallas. He led the effort to ensure Dallas citizens' access to Uber and other innovative car hire services.
