Congressman Ron Wright

Arlington Congressman Ron Wright has been admitted to a Dallas hospital for what are described as complications related to his treatment for lung cancer.

A statement from his office says Wright has been, "in a tough battle with cancer this year." 

Taking office in January of 2019, Wright announced six months later he was taking radiation treatments for cancer.

In December of that year, he described his cancer as "Stage 4."

Wright is a former Arlington city council member and the one-time Tarrant County Tax Assessor-Collector.
