BAYSWATER mayor Sylvan Albert was admitted to hospital this week after feeling unwell.
Deputy mayor Mike Sabatino says Cr Albert took ill last Saturday, cancelling an appearance at the Avon Descent the following day: “The doctors have told him to rest, but he will be back on council duty this Saturday,” says Cr Sabatino. “They are going to run some tests and try and get to the bottom of it.”
Cr Sabatino says Cr Albert did not suffer a heart attack, but refused to go into specifics.
The Voice contacted the council for official comment, but it didn’t get back to us.
Meanwhile, Cr Sabatino confirms he will re-contest central ward at the local government elections in October. “I was considering running in the north ward against Mike Anderton, because we had a disagreement,” he says. “But I’ve changed my mind.” He refused to shed further light on the “disagreement”.
