Statement on Senator Sarlo’s health

Statement of Chris Eilert, Chief of Staff to Senator Paul Sarlo:

“Senator Paul Sarlo is resting comfortably in his hospital room with members of his family. He is awake, alert, responsive and communicating. He is continuing to undergo tests to determine the cause of the episode he experienced on 10-20-08. He hopes that these test results will definitively exclude a cardiac or neurological event as the cause of the episode. The senator is very grateful to the Wood-Ridge police and fire personnel who assisted him and the Hackensack University Medical Center medical staff that is treating him.”
