SALT LAKE CITY — Salt Lake County Councilman Randy Horiuchi said Monday he is still working toward his normal routines after suffering a stroke Jan. 27.

He said he has been in intensive rehabilitation therapy both as a patient at University Hospital and more recently while recovering at home.

Horiuchi, 58, attended Monday's opening of the Little Valley Trail and Tunnel in Draper, a project he has supported that uses a tunnel under the Traverse Mountain Road highway to connect trails areas on either side. He said he feels well and is back to "about 50 percent"  of his usual routines so far.

Horiuchi, a past state chairman of the Democratic Party, was elected in 1990 to the County Commission, where he served two terms. He was elected to the new County Council in 2002 and is currently in his second six-year term.
