Floridians,

This week, I had the opportunity to join Governor DeSantis at a press conference regarding COVID-19 vaccines at Olive Baptist Church in Pensacola. At the event, Governor DeSantis announced two new vaccination sites run by Ascension Sacred Heart Hospital, one at Olive Baptist Church and the other at the Milton Community Center.

I thank Governor DeSantis for leading this effort and working tirelessly to put people over politics and ensuring that our state’s economy is being protected. Also, a huge thank you to the team at Ascension Sacred Heart Hospital, Olive Baptist Church and Milton Community Center.

In addition, I also hosted a ‘Rally at the Restaurant’ event at The Fish House in Pensacola to advocate for vital COVID-19 liability protections for Florida businesses. At the event, I was joined by state leaders, lawmakers and business owners and encouraged Floridians to patronize and support local businesses and called for meaningful liability shields for our business community. It is critical that the Legislature enacts COVID liability protections for our businesses, our non-profits and healthcare providers this legislative session.

In recognition of January as Financial Wellness Month, I am urging all Floridians to know the warning signs of fraud. Remember, while budgeting, savings, planning for retirement, and good credit management are important tools to keep your finances in order, a critical part of any financial plan is fraud prevention. If you suspect that you are a victim of fraud, report it immediately at FraudFreeFlorida.com.

Lastly, it's been two years since January 8, 2019 – a day I will never forget – Inauguration Day. Serving as Florida’s Chief Financial Officer is the honor of a lifetime and I will continue to work every day to help build a better, stronger Florida.

Have a happy and safe weekend!


Sincerely,

Jimmy
Jimmy Patronis
Chief Financial Officer
State of Florida
