Frank Ney is the cel­e­brated for­mer mayor largely re­spon­si­ble for bring­ing the world fa­mous In­ter­na­tional Bath­tub Race to life in 1967. The an­nual event con­tin­ues to this day. He is also re­mem­bered for his ec­cen­tric, charis­matic per­son­al­ity as well as for his fond­ness for wear­ing a pi­rate cos­tume to pro­mo­tional events.
