Filmmaker for FW Mayor
The contest for Fort Worth mayor just got more interesting as North Texas experimental filmmaker Nicholas Zebrun, who is 27, filed this week to run as a candidate. Some of Zebrun’s expressed priorities are fairly boilerplate – improve education and urban infrastructure, curb wasteful spending, etc. But he has also said that funding theaters and museums would be among his top goals as mayor. That and the fact he is a filmmaker suggest he might be “the arts candidate” at a time when discussion of slashing public arts funding is high.
