TALLAHASSEE (FLV) – Friday, Gov. Ron DeSantis announced he has appointed Michael Greenwell to the Lee County Board of County Commissioners.

Greenwell, originally from Alva, owns 31 Produce and is the Treasurer of Big League Builders. He is also the former President and current Vice President of the community board in North Olga, along with being a former professional baseball player for the Boston Red Sox.

“Lived pretty much my whole life here, and living out there in District 5, I’ve watched the growth and I’ve watched how much we’re expanding, and I just felt like it’d mean a lot to me because I think I have a voice people would listen to,” Greenwell told WINK News. “I felt like it was my time to serve and jump in and hopefully help our community out there.”

“Listen to those people and see if we can make some changes well make the growth better and smarter. Just be involved and try to be their voice,” he went on.

Greenwell is replacing Frank Mann after his death last month.

“Frank Mann was a passionate champion for his community and a mentor to me,” Former House member Matt Caldwell said. “He deserves deep credit for my entry into politics and he was always there to cheer us on, bringing this sign and signature wide grin to our kickoff in 2017. He will be dearly missed. Godspeed my friend.”

DeSantis announced a modicum of other appointments Friday afternoon, including:

– Lieutenant Governor Jeanette Nuñez and Jeanette Rubio to the Statewide Council on Human Trafficking,

– Alicia Beshears as Taylor County’s Superintendent of Schools,

– Gregory Billman and Steven Valentine to the Florida Defense Support Task Force, and

– Robert Benson, Sheldon Bernau, Bruce Cumings, Thomas Hodge, Brian Seuter, and Michael Jaccoma to the Board of Pilot Commissioners.
