Wellington Honors Fransetta

The Wellington Village Council honored longtime resident Tony Fransetta on Tuesday for his years of leadership, service and dedication to the Village of Wellington. After retiring from Ford Motor Company in 1990, Fransetta served on several advisory councils in the village, as well as on boards for hospitals and health networks, including Wellington Regional Medical Center and the Medicare Advisory Council of Southeast Florida. In 1998, he became president of the Florida Alliance for Retired Americans, based in Wellington, which grew from 37,000 members to its current membership count of more than 200,000.
