Bradenton councilman's hip surgery successful

May 28, 2013 

Six-term First Ward Councilman Gene Gallo of Bradenton had successful surgery Sunday to mend a broken femur, according to his daughter, Darenda Marvin.

Gallo was involved in a riding lawnmower accident Saturday while on a trip to Georgia.

"Dad is actually doing really well," Marvin said Monday. "He'll need to recuperate the next two weeks in Georgia before he can come home."

Gallo, a 50-year Bradenton resident, is serving a sixth four-year term as city councilman of Ward 1.
