Speier to miss two weeks in Congress for surgery

 

U.S. Rep. Jackie Speier, D-San Francisco/San Mateo, will undergo surgery on Thursday and will not be present for votes in Congress for the next two weeks as she recovers at home, her office announced today.

Speier's office did not specify the nature of the surgery that the congresswoman is scheduled to have.

Speier, a former San Mateo County supervisor, has represented California's 14th Congressional District since 2008. The district extends from the southern portion of San Francisco down to East Palo Alto.
