Political career

Simon's political contribution is most notable individually as the first female mayor of Fort Wayne, Indiana. Previously the comptroller of the city, she held the position of mayor for 11 days in 1985, after being appointed to replace fellow Democrat Winfield Moses who was forced to resign due to statutory criminal activity in his re-election campaign. Her short term ended after Moses won re-election in a special election.

Simon also served as a former budget aide to Indiana Senator Evan Bayh. She also served under Bayh when he was governor of the state of Indiana as a budget official, where she developed the plan to reorganize the state's accounting systems and worked to redesign Indiana's public school system.

Non-profit organizations

Simon served as executive director of the YWCA in Fort Wayne in the 1970s. In the late 1990s, she was the executive director of the League of American Bicyclists.
