The late Eva Galambos, the “founding mother” and first mayor of Sandy Springs, was honored with a special resolution by the Georgia Municipal Association at its annual convention last month in Savannah.

Mayor Rusty Paul, who attended the convention, read the resolution at the July 7 City Council meeting. It honored Galambos, who died in April, for her leadership in Sandy Springs’ pioneering cityhood movement.

Paul called it an “amazingly moving event.”

“There were very few dry eyes during that portion,” he said.

A framed copy of the resolution will be presented to Galambos’s family.
