Democratic Party activist

Boston City-council races may be nonpartisan in theory, but the 1999 campaign to replace Councilor Tom Keane in District Eight, which includes the Back Bay, Beacon Hill, the Fenway, and Mission Hill, could end up looking a lot like a clash between parties.

That's because Suzanne Iannella, the front-runner, is that rare thing in local politics: a Republican. And one of her strongest opponents, Alana Murphy, has been active in Democratic Party politics for years. If both make it through the preliminary, Murphy could turn the party issue to her advantage.

"She reflects more of the community than Suzanne potentially does," argues Mimi Turchinetz, a party activist and friend of Murphy. "The thing about Alana is that she has a history. She has been around a long, long time."

Capuano connection?

Supported Tito Jackson


In 2013 Mimi Turchinetz supported Tito Jackson's Boston Mayoralty campaign. As she herself stood for Council.

A little bit of rain did not dampen the spirits of the crowd at Tito Jackson's turkey fry this afternoon. If you wanted to find the Mayoral candidates it was the place to be. We were also pleased to be joined by US Senate candidate Ed Markey. Let's bring that enthusiasm to the voters and work for a good turn out in September.
