Galambos is expected to take the next several weeks to rest and recuperate. District 5 City Councilman Tibby DeJulio, also the mayor pro-tem, will briefly take on the mayor’s responsibilities during her absence.
Earlier this month Galambos, 85, announced she will not run for re-election this fall. She endorsed former District 3 City Councilman Rusty Paul as the candidate to replace her. Now in her second term, Galambos has led the city since it was incorporated in 2005.
