City Councilman David Romero suffered a stroke last month, and he has yet to return to work.
Now, residents are helping his family raise funds because Romero and his wife have been away from their jobs since the stroke. Romero is in rehabilitation in Albuquerque.
“He’s doing great. He’s progressing very fast. He’s walking and talking,” his daughter, Sonia Romero, told the City Council last week.
“We’re concerned for his health,” Mayor Alfonso Ortiz said.
