Kenosha Mayor John Antaramian reportedly suffered a heart attack Sunday, according to city administrator Ed St. Peter.
Antaramian’s condition was reported at several Memorial Day services which he was either expected to attend or was a planned guest speaker.
“He went to the hospital Sunday morning,” St. Peter said, adding he was having symptoms associated with heart problems.
St. Peter said Antaramian was stable and recovering Monday following a heart catheterization procedure. The name of the hospital was not released.
“He does not know how long he will be there,” St. Peter said.
He added that Antaramian always looks forward to attending the Memorial Day events throughout the city.
“If he could be there on a gurney, he would have been at all those events,” St. Peter said.
Organizers of the Memorial Day services asked for those in attendance to pray for Antaramian’s recovery, and news of his hospitalization on social media drew more than 100 well wishes Monday.
