KOMO news is reporting that Bellevue city councilmember John Chelminiak was attacked by a bear in Chelan County:
The Wenatchee World reports that John Chelminiak was walking his dogs at his vacation home near Lake Wenatchee when he was attacked. He was first taken to Central Washington Hospital in Wenatchee for puncture wounds to his face and head, but was soon taken to Harborview so he could be treated by doctors who specialize in reconstructive surgery. Chelminiak’s family said in a statement that he is currently in stable condition.
Chelminiak is one of the three Bellevue city councilmembers that support Sound Transit’s B2M alignment. We wish him a full and speedy recovery.
