By on September 21st, 2010

Former Florida Governor Buddy MacKay will speak at the University of Florida’s Bob Graham Center for Public Service on Thursday evening (September 23rd). MacKay stepped in as Governor after Lawton Chiles died unexpectedly in 1998. It was just one month before Jeb Bush assumed the office. MacKay is a former state lawmaker, U.S. Representative, Governor and diplomat and is considered one of Florida’s most successful leaders during his political career. Florida’s 89.1, WUFT-FM’s Michael Gillespie spoke with the former Governor about his life in politics, the environmental outlook for the Sunshine State and his new book, “How Florida Happened: The Political Education of Buddy MacKay.”
