Matthew Hamilton in Capitol Confidential reports that State Sen. James Seward (R-Otsego County) underwent successful bladder surgery on April 13, and will seek re-election this fall.

Seward said he will return to Albany after a few weeks of rest. Read the full story in Capitol Confidential.

Full Statement from Sen. Seward:

“In early February, I was diagnosed with bladder cancer by my physicians at Bassett Healthcare in Cooperstown. On Wednesday, I underwent successful surgery at Albany Medical Center where I will remain a patient for a few days.

“My physicians have advised me that the cancer was found in its earliest stages, is completely curable, and that I can expect to make a full recovery.

“While I will be briefly absent from my senate duties, my offices will remain fully functional and my staff will continue to assist my constituents with their concerns, issues and state-related matters. During this period, I will remain engaged and fully up to date on the state and local issues that affect the 51st senatorial district.

“I am looking forward to a complete and full recovery in a matter of weeks and eagerly anticipate resuming my regular active senate schedule on behalf of my constituents and throughout a busy campaign season.”
