5/10/2010

CONTACT: Jerri Franz and Jayme O’Rourke, 850-413-2842

TALLAHASSEE—Florida CFO Alex Sink asked the president of BP America today to fund a worldwide campaign to advise potential visitors to Florida that the state’s beaches and businesses are oil-free and open for business.

“Responding to this disaster will be a marathon, not a sprint, and these important first steps that BP must take will demonstrate your commitment to respond to the effects this spill is having on our state’s citizens and our economy,” CFO Sink wrote.

Here is a link to the letter that was issued today.

As a statewide elected officer of the Florida Cabinet, CFO Alex Sink oversees the Department of Financial Services.  A successful business leader with nearly three decades of experience in the private sector, Sink is serving her first term as Florida's CFO.  CFO Sink's priorities include using her business experience to cut wasteful spending, holding government accountable to Florida’s taxpayers, and cracking down on financial and insurance fraud.
