ALBANY, NY ( release ) In a statement obtained by Eyewitness News, New York State Senator George Maziarz explained his absence in Albany Monday.
Here is the text of the e-mail:
I briefly want to explain my absence from session today.
This morning I suffered a fall at my apartment in Albany and hit my head. I have recovered and I am feeling fine, but I will remain at Albany Medical Center throughout the remainder of the day and overnight for observation.
I expect to be released tomorrow morning and I am anxious to get right back into the swing of things in a very busy work week at the capitol.
I regret that I had to be excused from session today but I wanted to be up-front with my constituents about what happened. Their understanding and support is most appreciated.
