"Think about him as I read these words [from the Floria League of Cities]. 'The Honorable Randall Wise was a huge oak tree in a forest of saplings. Inside his ribcage built beat the heart of the quintessential Southern Gentleman and public servant. When Mayor Wise was president of the Florida league of cities, he was like a modern day Lincoln. Standing tall, ethically accumulating followers, leading with each step. The mighty oak has fallen. It is an honor to join in and pay tribute to a public servant whose passion for excellence and municipal government was with him every day.' We've come a long way Mayor wise. Thank you sir. Thank you dad."
