Former CFO Alex Sink has thrown her support behind Jeremy Ring, a former state senator who’s running for the Cabinet post she once held.
According to Sink, a Democrat who lost a bid for governor to Rick Scott in 2010, the CFO spot is “one of the most important statewide cabinet positions in Florida Government.” (It’s one of three statewide cabinet positions.)
Sink called Ring, a Broward County Democrat who was one of the founders of Yahoo, is a “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.”
Here’s more of what Sink had to say about Ring in an email announcing her endorsement:
As the former CFO, I know what it takes to succeed in this highly complex and diverse cabinet position. 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!
