Anderson County District 1 Commissioner Chuck Fritts

The stroke occurred Sunday night while he was visiting his son and another family member, a doctor, was able to treat him immediately and stabilize him until the ambulance arrived. His daughter told WYSH that he could be released from the hospital and homeward bound within the next couple of days.

We certainly want to keep Commissioner Chuck Fritts and his family in our thoughts and prayers and certainly send our best wishes for a speedy and full recovery as well as a safe and hopefully soon return to District 1.
