Kreidler recovering from heart surgery

The Associated Press

OLYMPIA — Insurance Commissioner Mike Kreidler is recovering after heart surgery.

Kreidler, 69, underwent the scheduled bypass and heart valve-replacement surgery Monday at Providence St. Peter Hospital in Olympia. Doctors had detected a heart murmur several months ago.

Acting Chief Deputy Deb McCurley will fill in for Kreidler while he’s out. Staff says that Kreidler is doing well and is likely to be back in the office within the next few weeks.
