Area congressman Anthony Brown had a stroke within a few hours of leaving the funeral of a county executive the late Kevin Kamenetz in Maryland.
The Washington Post reported Monday that spokesman Matt Verghese says Rep. Anthony G. Brown (D-Md.) is expected to make a full recovery.
His office said in a statement that Brown had experienced dizziness and nausea shortly after returning home from the funeral of Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz. His wife, Karmen Walker Brown, called 911.
The newspaper says the first-term-congress man was taken to University of Maryland Prince George’s Hospital Center, admitted for two nights and released Sunday. The 56-year-old is recovering at home and has not set a definite date for his return to Capitol Hill.
Brown served as lieutenant governor under former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley from 2007-2015.
CHALLENGES TO PUBLIC CORRUPTION IN MARYLAND.
Brown unsuccessfully ran for Governor in 2014, where he lost to current Gov. Larry Hogan. There are many county citizens who are calling on Congressman Brown to retire early due to his health but also due to many challenges affecting the Prince George’s County district as whole due to public corruption affecting many institutions in Maryland and elsewhere.
Dr. Kevin Maxwell the Prince George’s County School System (PGCPS) CEO recently announced his resignation effective end of school year.
Brown recently endorsed Ms. Angela Alsobrooks who is largely supported by developers which is a concern for many citizens in Prince George’s County and in Maryland in particular due to ties with corruption.
Brown was elected to Congress in 2016 after winning a six-way Democratic primary.
At this time, we wish Congressman Anthony Brown a quick recovery.
His spokesperson Verghese released the following statement:
On Friday evening, Congressman Brown was taken to the University of Maryland Prince George’s Hospital Center after experiencing the sudden onset of severe dizziness and nausea. After a series of tests, it was determined he experienced a minor stroke, but had no deficits. He was admitted for treatment and observation, and was released on Sunday. Upon recommendation from his doctors, the Congressman is recuperating at home and will have a limited public schedule.
Congressman Brown and his family are grateful for the excellent care he received and the outpouring of support and well wishes. He’s in good spirits, staying active at home and communicating with staff, and is eager to return to Washington. He is expected to make a full recovery.
