Today, the Register-Star published its coverage of last night's fundraiser for the Democrats: "City Dems make endorsements." It contains one new bit of information: it was announced that Carmine Pierro, the mayor's aide, would be running for alderman in the Fifth Ward, although he has not yet been officially endorsed.
The article also contains this rather remarkable quote: "Mendolia said the name recognition of Scalera and Thurston and their well known political records gives [sic] the party a strong chance to unify all five supervisors under the same party banner—something he hopes will help Hudson be more strongly represented on the county level. With Goetz leaving as well, Mendolia said that as party chairman he is excited by the potential of his party holding every government seat in the city. 'What’s going on this time is huge,' Mendolia said, 'it’s a unified ticket. We will prevail.'” You have to wonder how Mendolia defines unified.
