Yesterday, the press release from the Hudson City Democratic Committee shared the news that the HCDC had endorsed Jonathan Rosenthal as a candidate for alderman in the Fourth Ward. The announcement raised questions in Gossips' mind, as well as in the minds of readers: Who was Jonathan Rosenthal? Was Jonathan Rosenthal actually John Rosenthal? Should his name be correctly spelled Jon not John?
Today, Gossips received clarification from the man himself. The press release was in error. The name of the candidate endorsed by the HCDC for Fourth Ward alderman is John Rosenthal--not Jonathan or Jon but John. He even, at Gossips' request, provided a picture, to eliminate any confusion about his identity.
