CFO Jimmy Patronis Statement on Legislative Efforts Regarding Affordable Housing

9/8/2021

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Today, Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis issued a statement on legislative efforts regarding affordable housing.
 
CFO Jimmy Patronis
said, “I applaud the Florida Realtors dedication to working with House Speaker Sprowls and Senate President Simpson in the upcoming legislative session to create a new program to support firefighters, first responders, and nurses that need financial support to buy a home in the community where they serve. The Florida Realtors commitment to making housing more affordable - especially for our heroic frontline workers - is remarkable. I have seen our first responders work tirelessly, whether it was in the building collapse at Surfside, or in response to hurricanes and natural disasters, or their continuous sacrifice to care for those suffering from the deadly COVID-19 virus. Our heroes deserve our support, especially during such trying times and the dream of homeownership is something we should help them achieve. This is simply the right thing to do for those who do so much for us.”
