A walk in the park was no walk in the park for Assemblyman Steve Katz last week.
Yorktown Police, already on patrol in the park, were the first to respond. Katz was transported by Yorktown Volunteer Ambulance Corps to Hudson Valley Hospital Center, where he underwent surgery. He spent the night there, the leg was put in a cast and he went home the next day.
The mishap isn’t slowing him down, says legislative aide Matt Slater. Katz is working from home and still plans to attend a Town Hall meeting planned at the Yorktown firehouse on Commerce Street at 6:30 p.m. Thursday and another in Patterson on March 19 with Rep. Nan Hayworth.
“The only thing he had to cancel was our media meetings that were the following day,” said Slater.
