Rosenthal earned a B.A. degree in history from the University of Rochester[2] in 1980.[1] She served as an assistant to Congressman Jerry Nadler for thirteen years. She was elected to the State Assembly in a February 2006 special election to replace Scott Stringer, who left the Assembly to become Manhattan Borough President.[3][4] Rosenthal won the November 2008 general election with 84.7 percent of the vote[5] and ran uncontested in the November 2010 general election.[6]
