Kent County Commissioner Alex Rasin told his colleagues at their regular commissioner meeting that he facing two significant health challenges. Over the past few months, Mr. Rasin has been diagnosed with atrial fibrillation, a heart ailment that affects a person’s heart rate. He has also had a preliminary diagnosis of an illness closely related to Parkinson’s disease. He is being treated by Johns Hopkins Medical for both conditions. While both health concerns are treatable, they come with side effects that Commissioner Rasin wanted to make the public aware of, including troubles at times with walking and general balance. Mr. Rasin is committed to finishing his term as commissioner as well as Chairman of the Board for Peoples Bank. At the same time, he is looking forward to slowing down with his law practice until he formally retires.
