Galveston's new mayor is expected to take the oath of office during a special meeting this afternoon. Attorney Joe Jaworski beat out four challengers, and won Saturday's election with 53 percent of the vote. He replaces Mayor Lyda Ann Thomas, who is leaving office because of term limits.

Jaworski will take office, possibly as early as May 13, with three new council members.
