We know others will join us in wishing Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson
a speedy recovery after back surgery on June 1 in the green mountain state of North Carolina. Word is he had a pretty aggressive surgery to help him get out of the wheelchair he was finding himself bound to more and more, and one Republican said that he is already feeling better. Patterson was seriously injured in an automobile accident on August 10, 2012, at the intersection of Walton and Opdyke in Auburn Hills when another turned left into Patterson’s car. Patterson was in a coma for several weeks, and was left with debilitating injuries. Following surgery, we hear he is receiving physical therapy treatment regularly, and hoping to be back at work at the Executive Office Building for Oakland County later this summer. Looking forward to seeing Patterson out and about in the near future.
