Kenneth C. Crowe II reports in the Times Union that Rensselaer County Executive Steve McLaughlin has been diagnosed with prostate cancer. “My doctors are mapping out a course for treatment and recovery, which we will be pursuing. Fortunately, my doctors believe they detected the prostate cancer early and believe there is a very good chance of beating back the cancer,” the 59-year-old McLaughlin said in a statement. McLaughlin said he will work through the cancer treatment. “My diagnosis is a reminder of how prevalent prostate cancer is, and that so many are at risk for diseases of this type. Early detection can save lives and beat cancer. I urge everyone to get a preventative check-up with their doctor to stay healthy and detect early,” McLaughlin said in his statement. McLaughlin's trial on felony charges of allegedly misusing campaign funds and falsifying campaign financial reports is scheduled to begin on Jan. 23, 2023. Read the full story in the Times Union.
