BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. - Phil Maggio, a former Morgan County Commissioner who gained a reputation for being committed to the future of Morgan County, died Monday at Winchester (Va.) Medical Center.
He was 50.
Maggio, who served a six-year term on the Morgan County Commission, was outspoken about the future needs of Morgan County, especially in light of expected population growth in the county.
Maggio said he thought it was important for the county to have a strong, high-technology infrastructure in place.
In 1999, Maggio, along with other local officials, attended a conference with former Gov. Cecil Underwood in Shepherdstown, W.Va., to talk about the needs of the area.
