Phoenix City Councilman Tom Simplot was the first openly gay candidate to run for the Phoenix City Council. Throughout his tenure, he never lost sight of his responsibility to represent the interests of the LGBT community – even when it wasn’t politically popular. He used his considerable political and interpersonal skills to bear on his colleagues at the city to move Phoenix to the front of the line in supporting the LGBT community. He has also invested considerable time and energy outside of the council chambers serving on LGBT oriented fundraising boards and community groups.
