King County Metropolitan Council member Larry Gossett is recovering from a “slight stroke,” his staff said. Gossett suffered the stroke Sept. 2, and spent three days in the hospital.
He is not expected back at work until Sept. 23, on his doctor’s advice, said his chief of staff, Cindy Domingo. She said he is doing very well, and there are not expected to be residual effects from the stroke.
Gossett, 68, is chair of the council. He represents District 2, which includes the southern half of Seattle.
