Union City Mayor Brian Stack is now working from home but not due to COVID-19. Last week on June 18, Stack fell outside his office, suffering injuries to his ribs.
“I just want to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their calls and well wishes,” Stack said. “I was leaving city hall and fell down some stairs and broke a few ribs.”
Stack broke three ribs but reported no other injuries. Despite the fall, Stack has not stopped working while he is in recovery.
A virtual nod to graduates
“I am in in some pain so I am currently at home, but I am in constant contact with my department directors and offices to ensure the city and district office are running as usual,” Stack said.
Stack is also in frequent contact with local residents, handing out his cell phone number and meeting with residents one on one.
“As most of you know, I do not like to miss a day in the office, so rest assured, I will be back very soon to continue to serve the residents of Union City and the 33rd Legislative District,” Stack said.
While resting at home, Stack wished the class of 2020 a happy graduation after its virtual ceremony. The ceremony was prerecorded and posted on Facebook on June 19.
“Congratulations to all the 2020 Union City graduates! Celebrating your graduation through this very difficult time clearly displays how resilient and strong you are as graduating class,” Stack said. “I am proud of every single 2020 graduate and will always be your biggest advocate and voice for you and our community. Always reach out to me directly if I can be of any help to you.”
