Attorney General Bondi’s Statement Regarding the Passing of Governor Askew

TALLAHASSEE, Fla.—Attorney General Pam Bondi issued the following statement regarding the passing of Governor Reubin Askew.

“Governor Askew was a courageous public servant who led by example. He was guided by honesty and integrity, and he set a high standard for public service as he pursued ethics reform, transparency, and equality. Governor Askew’s love of teaching has inspired educators and students for decades. My prayers are with Governor Askew’s family and friends, and especially with his wife, Donna Lou, who not too long ago celebrated her golden anniversary with Governor Askew. Governor Askew’s leadership as Florida’s 37th Governor and as a teacher improved the lives of countless individual Floridians and our state as a whole. His legacy will live on forever.”
