THURMAN BLOWS OUT FIRST MILTON FUNDRAISER

Incumbent Milton Councilwoman Karen Thurman, being challenged by long-time Milton resident and landowner Bernard Wolff, blew out her maiden fundraiser Tuesday night at the Olde Blinde Dog pub in Milton. The event drew over 250 supporters and turned into a virtual who’s-who of Milton politics. Thurman was ecstatic at the turnout, and attributed it to the support she has earned over many years by working on Milton-related issues.

THE SHAMELESS GUILE OF JULIE ZAHNER-BAILEY

You have to hand it to Milton Councilwoman Julie Zahner-Bailey. Her shameless guile leaves no bounds.

Zahner-Bailey, who personally recruited Bernard Wolff to run against Karen Thurman, her arch ideological nemesis on Milton’s City Council, actually had the audacity to show up at her rival’s fundraiser. Perhaps afraid she would miss something, or wanting to see who showed up, Zahner-Bailey strolled into the event and mingled with the crowd, munched on Thurman’s food and sipped her pop. We did confirm that she did not give the Thurman campaign a donation, but spies at the event claimed she may have absconded off with a Re-Elect Thurman T-shirt when no one was watching.

This would be like me sneaking into a Nancy Pelosi fundraiser at the Wharf in San Francisco – without paying the $5,000 a plate required donation – and then scoffing down gobs of her fancy bay pawn shrimp and lobster while guzzling her premium beer (they don’t have PBR on the left coast) before slipping out through the kitchen window. Even I have more class than that.

Thurman said she sent an invitation to all Milton City Council members inviting them to attend, but only if they supported her re-election. The invitation specifically stated, “I would like to personally invite all those supporting my bid for re-election to the Milton City Council to join me…for a Reception/Fundraiser.“

So does Zahner-Bailey’s attendance indicate a switch in her political allegiance, from Wolff to Thurman? Crack reporter that I am, I attempted to ask Zahner-Bailey myself. After waiting patiently for 10 minutes while she finished up a conversation, I asked her the question point blank. Rather than answer, JZB said she would not talk to me, or anyone else at The Beacon, and promptly stormed off, in a huff. “Those pesky reporters, how dare they question me, don’t they know I am on a mission from God, and God says ‘No sewer in Milton,’” she may have thought. So the bottom line is: who knows?

c'mon, you all know that The Beacon has always had a thing for JZB. They've never been fond of her. I was surprised to hear she attended Karen's campaign party though. Scary actually.

I guess Mr Frederick has conveniently forgotten that Karen Thurman and Bill Lusk (firmly supporting Rick Mohrig)turned up at Alan Tart's first fundraiser at which Joe Lockwood was giving the opening address.

The Beacon is utter sensationalist trash!

Julie is crazy.

Our town is the lucky one who must deal with her.

Please tell me all citizens finally realizes this fact.

No that reporter isn't biased at all, sounds like he's on the Thurman payroll. Report the facts, and keep your opinion of Bailey or anyone else to yourself. Seems like the entire article was on Julie as the feature instead of Thurman for re-election. What kid of stupid article was that. Julie already was re-elected so focusing on her in that article did Karen ZERO. Just showed how the Beacon is pro Bill and Karen, always have been, pays to have those close relationships with people in the right places. That is what is so shameful of today's media nationwide. Fine report she was there, but let the people make their own synopsis, don't care about your opinion no matter who's camp you are in. I think people are sick of biased media by now.

This reporter Fredericks reminds me of Robert Gibbs, Obama's press secretary. Weak, bed wetter type of guy.

Forget about who wrote it, just look at the total lack of class this woman has. What a hypocrit!

"Let me hug you after I screwed you and your family"!

So you agree that Lusk and Thurman who showed up univited to Alan Tart's fundraiser lacks class, just as you accuse Julie, correct? If you are going to point the finger at her then acknowledge that they did it as well.

Difference is open vs invite/supporter. JZB has a long history of subverting or crashing other folks events.
Maybe when JZB cleans up Milton, she can be outsourced to fix some other countries that need tidying, like places they mine diamonds. Oh, never mind, all the special people from there are already here, enjoying our pleasant accomodations.

The mayor found Alan, not Julie,unfortunately.

I'm more concerned about our mayor picking sides and so openly dividing the council in yet another election. Who's in charge of the city while his attentions are on the campaigns?

Do other mayors do this?

The reporter doesn't proof read. Can't spell Milton's political pub.

Show the guest list sign in book, over half of the people there were from outsie of Milton. Nice to have support outside of the City. Too bad they can't vote.
