Veteran Lobbyist Bob Levy Dies

Apr 13, 2016

 "Levites," a cadre of lobbyists, legislators and aides who credit veteran lobbyist Robert M. Levy for their entrance into the cutthroat world of Florida politics, are mourning the loss of their mentor, who died Tuesday in Tallahassee after a lengthy battle with salivary-gland cancer.

Levy, who was 67, was one of a handful of remaining old-school lobbyists who, until his death, spent decades representing numerous Miami-Dade County interests.
