Suri Kasier is out of Bill Thompson’s campaign.
“We no longer do Bill Thompson fund-raising,” woman who answered the phone at the offices of Kasirer Consulting confirmed. The woman, who did not give her name, then referred my inquiry to Thompson’s campaign office.
Kasirer has consistently ranked among the city’s top lobbyists and active money people since opening her office in 1999, when her husband, Bruce Teitelbaum, worked for then-mayor Rudy Giuliani.
It’s unclear what prompted the departure, or whether this was a move that was a long time coming.
If anyone knows more (or I’m missing something obvious), please let me know.
UPDATE: More than one person I’ve spoken with said Kasier had been winding down her fund-raising operation for some time, and Thompson was her last fund-raising client.
