As you know because youre a New Times reader and were New Times were not the sort to glad-hand politicians. If we were clinging to the lip of a crevasse and forced to pick a pol to save our life, wed just let go. If choosing death wasnt an option, wed pick Tom Simplot, Phoenix City Council, District 4. The urbane public official has championed a number of causes we think worthy in his four-plus years, but its the small cultural flourishes that keep on giving. One example is the summer Moonlight Movies in the Park series at Steele Indian School Park. The councilman negotiated the funding that built the parks three-story-tall movie screen, and while the fares not cutting-edge or anything Jurassic Park kicks off this years series at sundown Saturday, May 17 hey, its politics. Lets be thankful for what we can get.
