He’s a former state representative, a member of the constitution revision commission, and a former member of the Florida elections commission.
Jimmy Patronis is looking to hold on to a position he’s held for a little more than a year, since he was appointed by Gov. Rick Scott.
He’s placed a big emphasis on his Floridian heritage and the work he’s done in his native Panama City, including working at his family’s restaurant and his role in establishing Panama City’s international airport.
Here’s where he stands on a few key issues under the CFO’s purview.
The state’s insurance industry:
Patronis has said that he wants to remain aggressive in pursuing and investigating insurance fraud. For example, a week before the August primary his office issued a press release focused on a fraud arrest of former NFL player Marlon McCree. He told the Tampa Bay Times that his office has made more than 800 arrests and more than 700 prosecutions related to insurance fraud.
Voter rights restoration and Amendment 4:
Patronis, who has said little about Amendment 4 other than saying it’s ultimately up to voters, was criticized in a segment on Last Week Tonight with John Oliver for his tendency to ask the felons coming before the clemency board whether or not they go to church.
