Members of the Progressive Advisory Council,
The next meeting of the Progressive Advisory Council, scheduled for this Monday, October 19th has been cancelled. Yesterday morning Congressman Adam Smith experienced some pain and tension in his right side. After visiting with the House Physician’s Office and a subsequent follow-up visit with doctors at Bethesda Naval Hospital, Congressman Smith was diagnosed with a collapsed lung. He underwent a procedure to address the situation Thursday night and is currently resting at Bethesda Navel Hospital. Congressman Smith is expected to make a full recovery.
I would like to thank everyone for your understanding during this tough time. I will do my best to schedule another meeting of the Council before the end of the year, depending on the Congressional voting calendar. Please stay tuned for a future date and location, which will be distributed via email as always.
Thanks and if you have any questions or concerns, I will be in the office today until 3:00pm and can be reached at 253-593-6603.
Office of Congressman Adam Smith
