Supervisor John J. Benoit to reduce workload due to illness

Author: SuperUser Account/Friday, November 18, 2016/Categories: Uncategorized, Government

This morning, Supervisor John J. Benoit notified colleagues and friends of the following information:

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

Weeks of discomfort, dry coughing and extreme fatigue led to my having a CT Scan Wednesday.  The scan revealed a number of pulmonary embolisms as well as a growth on the pancreas.  There are also spots on my liver and in my lungs. I was immediately admitted and am currently undergoing treatment and testing at Eisenhower Medical Center in Rancho Mirage.

It will be the middle of next week before a specific diagnosis is reached.  However, the consensus of the doctors seems to be that I will need rest and an aggressive chemotherapy process.

In light of the above I must reluctantly reduce my workload.  I will remain in close contact with my staff, however my Chief of Staff Michelle DeArmond is authorized to handle most matters to conclusion.  I Intend to continue attending Board of Supervisors Meetings, but I may utilize video or teleconferencing.  My outstanding staff will represent me at most other meetings.

I am hopeful that rest and appropriate treatment will result in my return to full work status in a few months.  In the meantime, I appreciate all the prayers and support that I have received, and I trust in God and know that he has a plan.

JOHN J BENOIT, Chairman
Riverside County Board of Supervisors
For further information, contact Fourth District Chief of Staff Michelle DeArmond at (760) 863-8211.
