The Lieutenant Governor had to be hospitalized, after he marched in a number of parades in scorching 90-degree heat over the Independence Day weekend and becoming ill.
Lt. Gov. Tim Murray, marched in five parades all this while, when a busy three-day holiday weekend was there. He felt somewhat unwell under the influence of weather and decided to get medical check-up done on Monday evening, Spokesperson, Kyle Sullivan said.
Murray, who is a Democrat and is in his early 40s, was spending the night at St. Vincent Hospital in Worcester, which is almost 40 miles west of Boston. He was there under observation and was filled with optimism, Sullivan shared.
A hospital Spokesperson wouldn't offer a statement on his condition early on Tuesday.
Murray is an ex- three-term mayor of Worcester, the State's second-biggest city. Ever since he resumed his office with Gov., Deval Patrick in the year 2007, Murray has been tasked with maintaining the administration's association with cities and towns and leading outreach attempts to homelessness and veterans groups.
Countrywide, Murray has sported leadership roles on the Democratic Lieutenant Governors Association and the National Lieutenant Governors Association Executive Committee.
He has worked with Patrick, who is considering stepping in for re-election.
