CFO Jimmy Patronis on the Passing of Sen. Dorothy Hukill
 
TALLAHASSEE, Fla.—Florida Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis released the following statement regarding the news that Sen. Dorothy Hukill (R-Port Orange) has passed away.
 
“Katie and I are saddened to hear of the passing of Sen. Hukill. She was one of the most passionate and honest legislators I had the opportunity to work with during my time as a state representative and as CFO. Her kind heart and positive attitude was a guiding light, a north star for all of us.
 
“I met Dorothy when I first was elected in 2006. She was a huge advocate for consumer rights and she fought for Florida families. Whether it was keeping the cost of living low or ensuring access to affordable insurance, Dorothy was a force to be reckoned with.
 
“My heart aches for her family, loved ones, and friends. Florida has lost a truly incredible and dedicated woman, a woman who loved her community and her state.”
