TO: The Wonderful Residents of Dolton
“First of all, thank you for the outpouring of prayers and other support. I truly appreciate it.
I suffered a stroke about a week ago. Fortunately, I recognized the symptoms right away and I have been receiving top-flight medical care. All of the signs point to a full and speedy recovery.
I will be commencing rehabilitation in the next few days. Completing rehab will take a couple of weeks. While in rehab, I will be fully able to communicate with my staff via conference call and Zoom, and perform my duties as Mayor. I remain fully committed to serve you now and in years to come as your Mayor.
As things progress, I will provide you with updates on my health and rehab progress. Once again, thanks to all Dolton residents for your continuing support.”
