Philip Sheridan "Phil" English (born June 20, 1956) served as a Republican member of the United States House of Representatives from 1995 - 2009 from the U.S. state of Pennsylvania, representing the state's 3rd Congressional district.
After 14 years in the U.S. House, he was defeated for reelection by Democrat Kathy Dahlkemper on Nov. 4, 2008.
English is a lifelong resident of Erie. He attended Portsmouth Abbey School in Portsmouth, Rhode Island. He graduated from the University of Pennsylvania. While in college, he served as Chairman of the Pennsylvania College Republicans. Former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum said that while he was attending Penn State University, English knocked on his dorm room door early one morning and told him he was going to start a College Republicans organization there. At age 20 he still holds a record (which was later tied in 2000) for being the youngest Pennsylvania Alternate Delegate to a Republican National Convention.
