Well-wishes for a supervisor

Supervisor Cedell Brooks Jr. has been hospitalized since Monday morning. Unofficial word is that he’s had a series of mini strokes, and doctors were trying to figure out what was causing them.

We haven’t been able to confirm any of this. Cedell’s wife, Carolyn, asked that people would keep their family in their prayers and respect their privacy.

Cedell has been on the King George Board of Supervisors since 1991, and he represents the Shiloh District. He’s a familiar face at church and civic events, where he often emcees gatherings. He’s been known to sing and dance and once performed a song he had written about his love for King George.

Our thoughts are with him and Carolyn, their daughter, Cayla, and the entire Brooks family.
