LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Jeffersonville city councilman Josh Rodriquez died suddenly Wednesday.

Mayor Mike Moore confirmed Rodriquez's death to WDRB News.

Rodriquez was 42 years old.

He had been recovering at home from an apparent heart attack on March 4. That’s when he became ill at the meeting during which he was elected the Democrat party chairman for Clark County.

Rodriquez was one of three at-large council members. He took his seat after court challenges and a recount of results from the 2015 general election.

He was a nurse and known for his efforts to improve Jeffersonville neighborhoods.

Funeral arrangements are pending.
