City Council chief hospitalized

Anna Verna is apparently in the hospital, as I heard on NPR this morning. She has some kind of pulmonary condition requiring intervention, and has already been under care for a couple of weeks. Sounds serious -- I hope that everything goes smoothly and she's back on her feet soon. (The press release said she'd be out in another week, and fit in time for the September session.)

Anna Verna is an extremely dedicated and hard working leader of City Council, as well as being an extremely nice person. It is good news that she will be able to return to City Council soon. See is one of Philadelphia's senior employees, having begun work for then District Attorney (later Mayor and School Board President) Richardson Dilworth in the 1950's, and having served in City Council without interruption since 1976.
