Warner Robins mayor takes medical leave

Best wishes to him. (Full story)

Mayor Donald S. Walker announced Tuesday he is taking an indefinite medical leave and turning the reins of city government over to Mayor Pro Tem Clifford Holmes.

Asked how long he will be gone, Walker responded, “I don’t know, I’m not a doctor.”

In a stunning announcement at Tuesday evening’s council meeting, Walker said he planned to leave today to seek treatment at the Hughston Clinic in Columbus for a persistent foot injury that has frequently incapacitated him.
