mayoral health problems

i give mayor ballard a lot of flak, but here's hoping he remains in good health:

Mayor Greg Ballard is wearing a heart monitor today after being admitted to a hospital on Monday while suffering chest pains.

Ballard, 53, was admitted to Community East Hospital with chest pains and shortness of breath, his office announced this morning.

"Doctors ran an EKG and the mayor underwent a stress test, the results of both tests were normal," a statement from press secretary Marcus J. Barlow said.

just last week, the mayor had knee surgery to fix an injury he obtained in july while bowling.
