86-year-old former Mayor of San Antonio Phil Hardberger had received care at a local hospital Monday after suffering a mild heart attack, according to a spokesperson.
“We appreciate the community’s thoughts and prayers as he recovers,” said a spokesperson for the Phil Hardberger Conservancy to the media.
This is not the first time Hardberger had issues with his heart. He underwent a procedure for a clogged artery back in 2013.
Hardberger had served as Mayor from 2005 – 2009. Friday, city officials had celebrated the opening of a major landbridge that bears the former mayor’s name.
