Statement on the Passing of Jan K. Platt
Hillsborough County, Fla. (Nov. 3, 2017) - Please see the statement below from Chairman Stacy White on behalf of the Hillsborough County Board of County Commissioners:
Hillsborough County has suffered a great loss today with the passing of former Hillsborough County Commissioner Jan K. Platt. Commissioner Platt was the epitome of good, honest government. Dedicated to continually preserving Hillsborough County's natural heritage, Platt was also a champion of the environment. It was this commitment and caring that led Hillsborough County to rename its program to the Jan K. Platt Environmental Lands Acquisition and Protection Program. The residents of Hillsborough County were fortunate to have Commissioner Platt not only serve on the Commission, but to continue to work for our community throughout her life. She has left behind a great legacy that will have an impact for generations to come. On behalf of all the citizens of Hillsborough County, I offer condolences and prayers to the Platt family.
