Q.8 Naples' first mayor Speed Menefee earned the title "Fifteen Minute Mayor." How long was his term as mayor?

NDN says the correct answer is 'almost 17 months', however the book "When Peacocks were Roasted and Mullet was Fried" (pp. 20-21), by Doris Reynolds, 1993, Naples, FL: Enterprise Publishing, A Division of D. Reynolds Enterprises, Inc. Copyright 1993 by Enterprise Publishing reports '15 minutes', hence the name.
