Commissioner Recovers, Taking Time Off Before Budget Retreat

District 2 Douglas County Commissioner Kelly Robinson is recovering after collapsing at at board of commissioners meeting on Oct.15.

District 2 Douglas County Commissioner Kelly Robinson is recovering after collapsing at at board of commissioners meeting on Oct.15.

"I was released from a hospital last Friday and am beginning treatment by a Gastro-Intestinal specialist," he said in an email. "The issue is a long yet shallow ulceration in the esophagus. I plan to take some time off with hopes of full recovery in November in time for our budget retreat.  

"In the meantime, all citizens, viewers and voters - please vote!"

Kelly was taken to Douglas WellStar Hospital after he collapsed.

Not well enough to attend a neighborhood meeting Tuesday evening, the meeting was designed to allow residents within District 2 an opportunity to help re-cast the vision for Douglas County - over the next 5 to 10 years. 

Deputy County Clerk Jamie Brown Bennett read the following statement (attached) at the meeting for Robinson: "As you may know, I had a recent 'non-cardio,' medical experience and based upon medical, familial, professional and spiritual advisement, I made a decision to allow proper time for the healing process to finish."

The statement continued, "You may ask why not postpone the session until I return? Recognizing the meeting had already been set in motion, I personally believe that leadership ensures things get done not necessarily doing everything oneself."

Kelly described the meeting as a pre-cursor exercise to the subsequent planning and budgeting processes. 

"Such collaboaration between neighborhoods and their local government is becoming a practical tool to get feedback," he said. "There are other electronic means such as surveys, however, quantitative should be balanced with qualitative to ensure a richer engagement and exchange."
