City Councilor Skip Steele said Friday that he has been diagnosed with strep pneumonia and expects to be released from the hospital Saturday.
“I feel fine,” Steele said.
The District 6 councilor was taken to St. John Medical Center on Thursday after he started shivering at City Hall after a morning committee meeting.
“I had like the shivers, like I was freezing cold, but I wasn’t cold,” Steele said. “It scared me.”
Steele said his blood pressure was also elevated.
Steele, a Republican, was elected in 2011.
