Denver City Council has a new leadership team. Councilman Albus Brooks, District 9, is the new council president, taking over for former Council President Christopher Herndon. Brooks won approval for the job from his fellow council members at the start of Monday night’s council meeting. Councilman Jolon Clark was also voted by his colleagues to take over as council pro-tem. He will replace Councilman Paul Lopez who currently fills the role. Since Brooks is recovering after being diagnosed with a rare form of cancer called chondrosarcoma and having surgery to remove a tumor from his back, Clark will be heading up meetings until Brooks returns from his medical leave.
