Dixon case in court, mayor at a fundraiser
The first motions in the state's case against Sheila Dixon are scheduled to start at 10:30. So what's a mayor to do on such a potentially stressful morning? Hold a fundraiser!
According to an e-mail from Friends for Sheila Dixon, the mayor hosted a breakfast fundraiser this morning for her re-election campaign. Tickets were $250 for individuals or $1,000 for sponsors of the event.
In the department of particularly amusing timing, the mayor who's on trial for gifts she's accused of taking from developers is giving the fundraiser a development theme. The subject line for the e-mail solicitation is, "Come Enjoy a Warm Meal and Get Hot Information about Baltimore's Superblock Development!" The rest of it reads:
Tomorrow morning, March 26, join Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon from 7:30-9am for her Annual Business Breakfast at Lucy's Irish Restaurant (formerly Maggie Moore's), 21 North Eutaw Street in Baltimore.
Find out the latest about the Superblock Development from John Small, Vice President of Development at BLDG Management Company, and enjoy the best breakfast buffet on Baltimore's West Side: fruit, muffins, sweet breads, oatmeal, cheese grits, potatoes with peppers and onions, scrambled eggs, quiche, French toast, corned beef hash, Irish bacon, American bacon, Irish sausage and juice, tea coffee, soda and iced tea.
Tickets can be purchased at the door and are $250 for a Guest and $1,000 for a Sponsor (includes 2 guest reservations).
