Jack Seiler, mayor, Fort Lauderdale
Last week: The death of former Mayor and Congressman E. Clay Shaw, Jr. is a tremendous loss. In a long and distinguished career, he personified a more civil style of public service. Clay Shaw was collegial, dignified, and honorable, and always did what he thought was best for our city, our state, and our nation. He was respectful of others, even those who disagreed with him, and he was very well-respected by all in the process. I always admired his bipartisan and nonpartisan approach to issues that impacted our community, and his ability to balance a great family life with a successful political career. Clay Shaw will be missed, but never forgotten.
