After apparently ghosting on his campaign for Phoenix mayor, former City Councilman Tom Simplot has landed a Beltway job working under an appointee in the Trump administration.
Simplot has started a new gig as senior adviser to Mary Anne Carter, senior deputy chairwoman at the National Endowment for the Arts, according to the organization’s website. He started this month.
In non-bureaucratic speak, Simplot works for one of President Donald Trump’s liaisons to the arts endowment. Carter is a well-known GOP operative and Trump ally.
