Second Debate Comes To Milton.

By Tim Enloe
Accessmilton.com


This past wednesday night, another Milton debate transpired. This time around the event organizer was Beacon Media with host Atlanta National Golf Club.

Moderators were Jonathan Copsey and John Fredricks of The Beacon.

In attendance with Mayor Joe Lockwood were council candidates Joe Longoria, Bill Lusk, and Karen Thurman. Absent were candidates Tina D'Aversa, Al Trevillyan, and Bernard Wolff citing scheduling conflicts.

With a crowd of 25 to 30 citizens in attendance, the protocal called for 90, 60, and 30 second answers.

The first question focused on Mayor Lockwood's support of all three incumbants and his continued faith in D'Aversa. Other issues addressed were sewer vs septic, park land use, as well as the city's financial state.

Bill Lusk, candidate for the district three seat, was pleased with the venue. "It was a pleasure to participate in the Debate sponsored By the Beacon and held at Atlanta National on Wednesday Night last. The questions posed to those serious candidates Who took the time to show up, were the ones that truly are Of concern to our residents," Lusk said, "It is disconcerting to know that Three of the proclaimed candidates chose to Boycott the event. One can only surmise as to their reluctance to expose themselves To the real issues and search for the truth."

District 1 candidate Karen Thurman concured, "I thought the debate was very professionally run. The questions for each candidate were both unbiased and direct. They were also relevant to all of us that live in Milton."

Mayor Lockwood, running unopposed this season, was still invited to participate. "I enjoyed having to opportunity to share my thoughts and visions with our citizens"

The discussion lasted for roughly and hour and half with cocktails and Hors d'oeuvres prior and a cash bar after.

Wow a whole 25 to 30 people in attendance - predominantly family members I believe.

Where were all the Lusk, Longoria and Thurman supporters? Surely you should all flock to support your candiates and hear them speak irrespective of whether their opponents are in attendance or not?

Lusk is an arrogant jerk. It's a shame his opponent didn't qualify to be on the ballot.

Go Karen.

Go Bill.

Go Joe.

Finally Milton will have a working council like Johns Creek, Roswell and Alpharetta.

It just took us way too many years to get to this point. We just needed council members who know how to work together as a group. You don't have to agree on every point, but you need to respect each other!!

I have been around Lusk numerous times and have never seen any arrogance in him. What are you talking about. As to why so many people did not show up I had thought it had been cancelled. Anyway about 150-175 showed up at the Mayors house last night for Lusk. Thurman and Longoria were also there and what a very pleasant evening it was. How many showed up at white Columns last night for the other three? Does anybody know or really care?

Boycott? Tina D'Aversa, Al Trevillyan, and Bernard Wolff were not contacted about the debate until October 22. Should they have canceled scheduled meetings with interested voters?

The Roswell Beacon's owner is on the list of Contributors to Bill Lusk.

Anyone smell 2 day old mackerel in the sun?

Hey John Fredericks how much is Karen paying you to not print the latest in the Beacon.

Didn't realize Milton wanted to be Johns Creek, Roswell, and Alpharetta. Go ahead and vote for Karen,Bill, and Longoria, and they will help Joe Lockwood and his shadow Burt change this city before your eyes people. Our Mayor HAS changed sides over the course of the year, he's just been outed and doesn't know how to get out of the mess he's in by supporting both sides. Can't save face now, too late.

That mackerel sure does stink.

Wonder if all the people who hate the change in Milton shop at Target, Kohl's and Aldi? Milton needs the tax revenue from businesses like these!

The Hitler Proganda machine is in full force. Do not believe Julie's lies. She will do anything to have her puppets in action. Trust me, ANYTHING.

Hey, I am a second generation Jewish immigrant and I know when I see lies. Karen Thurman, Bill Lusk are liars

Nothing Tina has been accused of even compares to Karen and the way she victimized our military and senior citizens. Karen, how could you? You leak Bernard's family turmoil to the Beacon, yet the Beacon hasn't reported this. You are all the things people call Julie. You have lost my vote over this. My nephew has been to Iraq four times and will be going back a fifth, to protect trash like you!

Impeach Julie! She is the only verifiable student of NAZI politics. Do not believe the evil....

The Joe Lockwood reception for Bill Lusk was indeed a very nice event. I have known Bill for about three years now and he is very nice and sincere and talented man who cares about Milton.

Good luck Bill. We will be better with you on the council again when you are reelected on Tuesday.

Let's see, Lusk is tardy, Karen is greedy, and Longoria is from a state where two presidents trashed the economy. Better vote for Tina, Al, and Bernard. At lease they are business people.

I've researched the issue about Karen Thurman. I think this is a very low attempt by her opponents to try and take away her credibility. She was not an officer, director, manager or employee of the company. Looks like she was simply an investor in the company. The pitch to investors was that we are a company that helps those with poor credit to get financing and we also help people with poor credit restore that credit. The pitch also said that the company operates within the legal and ethical rules regarding poor credit lending. There is no way as an outside investor that Karen or her family would have known the way the company was being run. It looks like to me that Karen only got involved to go against the company when the company was trying to get our of their obligations.

This is very low politics to try and hurt Karen's credibility with something like this. Makes her opponents look unethical to me.


PS - If there was really something true and valid here about Karen, don't you think one of the opponents would publish it officially or some credible news source would run a story on it. No, these are false and slanderous accusations. That's why you don't see anyone coming out with anything official. So, the rumor mongers simply try and find bits and pieces of truth on the internet and weave a deceptive story on anonymous internet blogs.

So Ms. Moneypants, a CPA who invested over a million dollars, and her daddy nearly $6 million, just blindly made those investments and was taken unawares. Is that what you wish us to believe? Some savvy businesswoman! Hey, if you believe that I've got some swamp land to sell ya!

You Zahnerites are absolute idiots, or disengenuous...maybe just both.

I just got an autodial from Julie, of all people.
She is "all in", as they say in Vegas. Invariably, she hides in the shadows like the wimpy Wizard of Oz, operating via dupes like Leona Cole, Paula Moore, pathetic Carol and nutty Nikky. This time, she is so desperate, the One herself has come out for her cast of candidates.
Her call says Milton will be the same if we vote her way...and it WILL!!!
In other words, no improvement, no parks, no quality of life increases, no tax relief, nothing.
Just a desperate longing for something that only exists in some minds every fall during elections. Anyone who really wants to protect, improve, save Milton needs to run away from the Z-ites as fast as they can.

Let's really do something innovative with our horse community, get parks that are the envy of the region, keep one acre,(regardless of who connects to EXISTING sewer pipes to protect the environment). Julie and her gang haven't done anything innovative in their lives. Look at Tina: uses co-hosts for events she hasn't gotten permission from, signs in places without permission, when corrected she extorts concessions or fires from City committees. She tried to veto the parks authority, didn't start disability awareness as claimed, didn't do much of anything. When an apparently reasonable opponent surfaces, she tries to bribe him to drop out...so she can save her sacred seat & title. Oh, she isn't a professor, she is an "instructor". Doesn't sound so cool.
We should be much more concerned about a man's brother going public saying he is unfit for a position of public trust, than some silly trumped up claim of an obscure company scandal.

Get real, go vote. The only truth is this IS an important election. In Dist 5, if Tina does win, we will have to pay $100k for a special election, undoubtedly, unless the City sues Tina due to her misconduct and makes her pay...which she can't.

Julie and her gang haven't run a business, held a job and most seem to have trouble selecting spellcheck when they blog. Do you really want moonbats running a $20million business, with your money and your property value at stake?

I don't.
