Florida Environmental Advocate Frank Mann Dead At 80

Although the current generation of political observers may not realize it, there was a time when environmental advocacy was popular in the Florida Legislature.

One of the people who was a leader in that effort was Frank Mann, who served in the Florida House and Senate in the 1970s and 1980s, representing the Fort Myers area. He died this week at 80.

He had a great sense of humor and often used his humor to make serious points about the need to protect Florida’s natural resources.

After he left the Legislature, he served many years on the Lee County Commission, where he continued to advocate for environmental preservation.

He will be missed. Frank Mann, RIP.
