Email: jeffrey.rosenfield@patch.com Phone: 727-253-7739 Hometown: Boston Birthday: February 7 Bio: After spending most of his adult life in sales and management, Jeff decided to leave the corporate world and go back to his true love - journalism.  After a year of freelancing for a number of Patch sites in the Tampa Bay area, Jeff was named assistant editor for the North Pinellas cluster in October. He will focus on a topic that is of great importance to the four communities in the region - small businesses. Your Beliefs  At Patch, we promise always to report the facts as objectively as possible and otherwise adhere to the principles of good journalism. However, we also acknowledge that true impartiality is impossible because human beings have beliefs. So in the spirit of simple honesty, our policy is to encourage our editors to reveal their beliefs to the extent they feel comfortable. This disclosure is not a license for you to inject your beliefs into stories or to dictate coverage according to them. In fact, the intent is the opposite: we hope that the knowledge that your beliefs are on the record will cause you to be ever mindful to write, report and edit in a fair, balanced way. And if you ever see evidence that we failed in this mission, please let us know. Politics: How would you describe your political beliefs?  I try to stay neutral when it comes to politics. I believe great leadership and positive influences can be found regardless of party affiliations. As long as the elected official is focused and committed to doing what's best for our city, county or country, I have no problem giving that person my full support. Religion: How religious would you consider yourself? Being brought up in a household with split beliefs - my mother is Catholic and my father was Jewish - helped me understand and appreciate different aspects of various religions. It also helped me believe that no matter what faith a person subscribes to, as long as it doesn't harm or interfere with others, any religion can be a helpful, positive and guiding force.
