Breaking: City Council President Tommy Hazouri Has Lung Transplant Surgery

Early this morning, City Council President underwent “successful” lung transplant surgery at Mayo Clinic. According to a news release made by the Hazouri team, “…the attending physician characterized the procedure as a success and the Councilman is already on his road to recovery.”

“In typical Tommy-fashion, [Hazouri] looks forward to getting back to work,” the release added.

The Florida Times-Union states, “City Council Vice President Sam Newby will assume the role of acting president while Hazouri undergoes recovery and rehabilitation.”
