Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman delivers her State of the City address Thursday, Jan 10, 2019, at Las Vegas City Hall.

Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman's swearing-in for a third term Wednesday has been postponed until May because she isn't feeling well.

Goodman has been undergoing treatment for breast cancer since January. She overwhelmingly won re-election earlier this month but skipped her Election Night party because she was feeling too tired after a recent round of chemotherapy.

Her husband, former mayor Oscar Goodman, delivered a victory speech on her behalf.

Carolyn Goodman attended a city council meeting the next day but left halfway through after feeling ill.

She also skipped a brief council meeting on April 10 because she was unwell.

City spokesman Jace Radke says overall the mayor is feeling better and she expects to have her swearing in at a May 1 council meeting.
