Alex Sink Goes to Bat for Jeremy Ring
Former state CFO Alex Sink showcased her support for former state Sen. Jeremy Ring who is running for the state CFO post in 2018. Sink is the only Democrat to win state Cabinet office in recent years though she stumbled as the Democratic gubernatorial nominee in 2010 and in a congressional bid in 2014.
“I am very pleased to endorse Jeremy Ring for the office of Florida's Chief Financial Officer, one of the most important statewide Cabinet positions in Florida government,” Sink announced on Tuesday. “I have known Jeremy for a number of years as a successful entrepreneur, a dedicated Florida state Senator, a philanthropic supporter and someone who agrees with me that we need to expand, modernize and stimulate our state's economy through innovation and smart job growth.
“As the former CFO, I know what it takes to succeed in this highly complex and diverse cabinet position,” Sink added. “Floridians need someone who is experienced in business, understands the complexities of insurance and financial markets and has the savvy and enthusiasm to tackle the challenges that Florida faces now and in the future. I truly believe that he is the right choice for Florida CFO!”
