The AJC reports…
Decatur City Commissioner Fred Boykin suffered a mild stroke Tuesday morning and was hospitalized, but is expected to recover.
Boykin, who owns Bicycle South, was taken for treatment at Emory University Hospital, where he will likely remain for the next several days, said city spokeswoman Linda Harris.
“He is having some slight problems with his vision, but the overall prognosis is good,” said Harris, who along with other city officials visited the commissioner Tuesday afternoon.
Cards can be sent care of Boykin to Decatur City Hall, 509 N. McDonough St.
Boykin served on the city’s planning commission and zoning board of appeals before being elected as city commissioner in 2001. His current term expires in 2009.
All my best to Commissioner Boykin and his family. Here’s hoping for a full and speedy recovery!
