Victor Town Supervisor Jack Marren is opening up about his heart attack. It was a health scare that took him by surprise.
Marren serves as Chairman of the Ontario County Board of Supervisors, and recently spoke to The Canandaigua Messenger about his experience.
Discomfort in his chest, and an ‘off the carts’ blood pressure reading led him to google search ‘heart attack’. “I was checking more boxes than not,” Marren told the Messenger.
He was taken by ambulance from the Victor Town Hall and transported to Rochester General Hospital. “There’s no question I never saw the heart attack coming,” Marren added, having the ordeal behind him.
He won re-election, despite not being able to campaign that much due to restrictions. That initial incident in July lasted several months, and ended with an operation a week after Election Day.
“Truth be told, I was not able to do as much door-to-door activities,” Marren said. “I’ve always felt that is one of the most rewarding but humble forms of campaigning. Health prevented me from that.”
