* From the House Republicans…
Last evening, Rep. Tom Bennett was involved in a serious car accident that resulted in 10 broken ribs, six in multiple places. He is currently being treated at St. Joseph Medical Center in Bloomington, and is expected to be there for a few days. Tom is known by his House Republican colleagues as one the hardest working members of the House. In fact, after the accident he was most concerned about his legislative paperwork that was engulfed in the flames. Please keep him in your thoughts as he recovers.
Reading Rep. Bennett’s (R-Gibson City) Twitter feed is exhausting. The guy is literally everywhere in his district. He goes to every event imaginable and that is not a small district. I’m always amazed at his energy.
Get well soon, Tom!
