Jim Alger OK after health scare
Many have noticed Alger's conspicuous absence even when a few dum dum Lyn Shaw supporters decided to attack him for "not offering help" to the Democratic Party (turns out as usual they were speaking out of their ass). Additionally, it had been announced at the last LANC Congress meeting that Alger was ill and he has missed several vital NC related meetings. Turns out ill was an understatement.
Several weeks ago, Alger was rushed to the emergency room after complaining of a severe headache and subsequently collapsing. He was treated for bleeding on the brain apparently brought on by critically high blood pressure. He has been recovering in his Porter Ranch home since.
The irony is that despite his poor health, and contrary to the jack-asses who can't resist kicking a guy when he is down, Jim is helping several local candidates, offering them use of his auto-dialers for outreach efforts. He tells the Sister City in an email today that he has even offered the dialers to the Lyn Shaw campaign. Of course I was going to ask "what campaign?" but figured his blood pressure was high enough.
Alger thanked people for their concern and says that despite the seriousness of everything going on he will be fine. He even brought home his newborn son from the hospital yesterday. 10lb 5oz John Robert is sure to be the newest stakeholder in the Northridge West Neighborhood Council.
"If there is anything I would say it would be take headaches seriously, they can kill you." Alger said.
Get well soon, and Congrats Jim.
