Statement by CFO Sink on Offshore Oil Drilling

6/18/2008

Tara Klimek or Kevin Cate
(850) 413-2842   
 
“Florida needs protection from Washington politics today. As Florida’s Chief Financial Officer, I’m concerned about what’s in the best interest for Floridians in the long-term. Leaving our state, our shorelines, and our tourist-based economy vulnerable to offshore oil drilling is a shortsighted and risky proposition.”
  
As a statewide elected officer of the Florida Cabinet, Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink  oversees the Department of Financial Services, a multi-division state agency responsible for management of state funds and unclaimed property, assisting consumers who request information and help related to financial services, and investigating financial fraud. CFO Sink also serves as the State Fire Marshal.
