Florida's "41st senator" passes away

Longtime state Senate aide Joan Glickman died Wednesday, according to the Broward legislative delegation office.

Glickman served as a Senate aide for former senators Howard Forman, now Broward Clerk of Courts, and Darryl Jones, of Miami. She also worked as an aide for current Sen. Frederica Wilson, D-Miami.

Glickman's tenure and personality prompted some to refer to her the state's "41st senator."

No additional details on her death were available Thursday.
