City Councilman Dan Halloran (R-Whitestone) is recovering at home after undergoing successful removal of a benign brain tumor on May 23 at the NYU Medical Center in Manhattan.
His spokesman, Steven Stites, said Tuesday that Halloran “is remarkably ahead of schedule in his recovery,” having been discharged on Saturday, five days early.
Stites added that aside from a scar behind his right ear, Halloran is in fantastic shape. “He’s been moving around easily and acting like the same old Dan,” the spokesman said.
The councilman, who is running for the newly created 6th Congressional Distrist seat, hopes to be back on the job and the campaign trail in one to two weeks.
Halloran found out in March that he had developed the tumor, following testing that he offered at his office through the Brain Tumor Foundation. He has taken a temporary leave of absence from the City Council.
His chief of staff, Chrissy Voskerichian, saw Halloran shortly after the surgery. “There was no hearing loss or loss of movement to his face,” she said.
