Some of you who have been regular visitors to this blog may have read on occasion my mentions of the I-4 Corridor Group. It is an informal association of progressive minded political activists from throughout the I-4 corridor from Tampa/St. Petersburg to Lakeland/Winter Haven to Kissimmee to Orlando and Daytona Beach who for the past several years have met every month to discuss issues and provide means where like-minded people can work together across county lines to elect progressive candidates to public office.

One of the founding members of this group is Fred Williams, a semi-retired pharmacist from Tampa. He's a great fellow who has done a lot of work for candidates over the years, and spent a lot of time, effort, and money to hold our group together during those early days when only a handful of people would show for meetings.

Fred has been in poor health recently, and is back in hospital for treatment. He fell and fractured a verterbre last weekend, had a pacemaker put in Friday and is scheduled today for back surgery. He also has dialysis every other day. I would sincerely ask that everyone who reads this please keep Fred Williams in your thoughts and prayers. If you know Fred, and want to contact him or send a card, here's his contact information:

Fred Williams
c/o St. Joseph's Hospital
Room 405-E
3001 West Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard
Tampa, Florida 33807
Telephone: (813) 554-8500

I know it's tough for the guy, as he's the type of person who simply hates being not active and doing something. Let's hope he's out and about again real soon.
