Mayoral Candidate William C. Thompson III appeared at the Kaye Playhouse yesterday evening and pictures and photos are still being processed. Definitely not warped speed here. Nevertheless, the WORD’s Jonathan Mena was there blogging and Twittering live.

Mayoral Candidate Bill Thompson Gives a Thumbs Up to the WORD’s Jonathan Mena

Friday, October 2nd, 2009

Democratic Mayoral Candidate William C. Thompson and Senior Editor/Producer Jonathan Mena crossed paths in August, 2008, after Thompson, New York’s City Comptroller, invited him and other CUNY student news journalists to his office for an official chat. And today one of Thompson’s media staff members twittered Mena that Thompson will be at Hunter October 22.

He twittered Mena after the senior editor/producer twittered this today:

From a November 1, 2007, WORD article: When asked by WORD senior editor and senior producer Jonathan Mena if his motivation for convening with young reporters was linked to a mayoral bid, Thompson replied, jokingly, “Who told you I was running for mayor?” Articles in several news/magazine publications, however, described him as a strong contender for the 2009 mayoral contest.

So, Thompson’s office was recently emailed a request for another meeting with the WORD.

This is a quickie alert because I’m trying to wrap up my semester and have been waylaid with last minute stuff. More later about NAM and its June 4-5 convention. Needless to say, NAM – thanks to Jonathan Mena, Kisha Allison, Jacqueline Fernandez and Eunji Jang – really admires Hunter students and does a lot to support them.

On with the quickie:

I would have preferred “Journalism Students Take Historic Reporting Trip”

… instead of the above headline from the recent issue of the Hunter Alumni magazine article about Kisha Allison, Jonathan Mena and Jacqueline Fernandez at the Democratic National Convention. Why?
