The staff of PolitickerNJ.com would like to take a moment to wish Assemblyman Albert Coutinho (D-29), Newark, a full and speedy recovery.
Coutinho drove himself to the hospital this morning after suffering a heart attack and he is currently in stable condition.
People who care about Coutinho have noted his worry and preoccupation in recent weeks over the condition of his family members.
His father and brother have both been contending with their own serious health issues, and they have depended on the assemblyman throughout.
We wish the entire Coutinho family – a mainstay of the great Ironbound section of Newark with their public service, organizing, leadership, family fortitude and business endeavors – health and happiness.
