Don’t be surprised if you see the University of Florida President riding to work at Tigert Hall on an electric bicycle. Working toward a sustainable campus is just one of the efforts of Bernie Machen. Machen spoke at the annual Joint Civic Club Luncheon on Wednesday and then sat down with WUFT’s Donna Green-Townsend to talk about some of the projects UF has underway as well as other issues.
