Former Mayor Lee Leffingwell reports that he is doing well following surgery for an aortic aneurysm. He described the condition as a weak spot in the aorta, the body’s largest artery. Leffingwell, who currently lives in Driftwood, said he is doing well and looking forward to getting back into the swing of things. Because of the surgery, he is not yet able to drive. Leffingwell, who served as Austin’s mayor from 2009 to 2014, said he was supporting former Mayor Kirk Watson in his race to return to the mayor’s chair.
