Breaking News: Voorhies Family Rocked By Cancer Scare
Marion County Recorder Julie Voorhies announced on her Facebook page yesterday afternoon that her husband and AFL-CIO Central Labor Council President Bob Voorhies is in the hospital being tested for cancer in multiple areas of his body. She reports that Bob is in good spirits but is in a great deal of pain.
If you know Bob Voorhies, you know that the disease doesn't know what it's gotten itself into! It doesn't have a chance! As previously mentioned, Bob is a political and union legend in these parts. He sometimes seems larger than life and is certainly one of a kind. All the clichés fit him even though he is not a cliché.
This year, the Voorhies family will be all over the ballot in parts of Marion County. Not only is Julie running countywide for re-election as Marion County Recorder, Bob's son, Brett, is running for Phil Hinkle's House District 92 seat.
I would like to send wishes for a speedy recovery to Bob and best wishes to his family as they cope with this tough news this holiday season.
