Linton's mayor on road to recovery; returning to work full-time on Monday

Friday, February 1, 2013

Linton's Mayor John Wilkes is on the road to recovery, in the fast lane. He's expected to be back to work full-time in the mayor's office next week.

Wilkes was admitted to Greene County General Hospital about a week ago, spent some time in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and was scheduled for surgery on Tuesday afternoon.

On Friday, the City of Linton's Comptroller David Sisk said the surgery was successful and Wilkes was released from the hospital on Wednesday.

The very next day, on Thursday, Wilkes was back in his office on a part-time basis.

"He's been in to the office on two mornings and he says he feels terrific," said Sisk. "Everything is going well."

Sisk said Wilkes is planning to return to his post full-time on Monday.

While Wilkes was undergoing medical treatment and recovering, the president of Linton's City Council, Fred Markle, has been serving as acting mayor.
