Former Buffalo Comptroller Andrew A. SanFilippo is recovering from open heart surgery performed last week at Buffalo General Hospital.
Tony Farina, his former City Hall spokesman, said SanFilippo is expected to leave the hospital today.
"He's facing a long convalescent and rehabilitation period, but everything seems to be going his way," Farina said.
SanFilippo, who resigned his city post last year, is now a deputy state comptroller.
