Councilman Lew Fidler, the Democratic candidate in the high-profile special election for former State Senator Carl Kruger’s State Senate seat, was recently admitted the hospital for a severe allergic reaction to medications he was taking.

The Politicker reached out to Mr. Fidler’s campaign, which sent this response from the candidate:

“A few days ago I was admitted to the hospital with a severe allergic reaction to a prescription medication I take to treat Gout. My physician has instructed me to be off my feet for the next few days. I’m grateful to my constituents, staff and the wonderful volunteers who continue to spend day and night pounding the pavement for our campaign. As soon as I have the permission of my physicians – and my wife – I intend to return full steam to the campaign trail. Of course, my district office will continue actively handling the day-to-day needs of my constituents. As always, anyone who needs my help should call my office.”

The Politicker sends our hopes for a speedy recovery. Lew Fidler Hospitalized
