CFO Jimmy Patronis Statement on President Trump Approving Hurricane Sally Disaster Declaration in Florida

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Today, Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis issued a statement following President Donald J. Trump declaring a major disaster in Florida yesterday and directing Federal support through the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to assist recovery efforts in areas affected by Hurricane Sally. The declaration includes public assistance for all categories in Escambia County and public assistance Category B for Bay, Calhoun, Franklin, Gadsden, Gulf, Holmes, Jackson, Liberty, Okaloosa, Santa Rosa, Walton and Washington counties.

CFO Jimmy Patronis said, “I applaud President Trump for making this important declaration and offering support as we recover from this significant storm.
