Public Records Relating to CFO Jimmy Patronis

Press Releases

Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and State Fire Marshal Jimmy Patronis announced today the sentencing of serial arsonist Shawn Vincent to 18 years in prison and 12 years of probation for two counts of arson to an occupied dwelling and one count of arson to a motorcycle. Vincent was arrested in May 2017 by CFO Patronis' arson team for two fires in the Bradenton area.
Florida Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis sent a letter to President Donald J. Trump on the need for the immediate repeal of an Obama-era regulation that has roadblocked states from reuniting unclaimed savings bonds with their rightful owners or heirs, many of whom are members of our Greatest Generation. Unfortunately, in many circumstances, the actual U.S. Savings Bond certificate has been forgotten, lost, stolen or destroyed, preventing CFO Patronis’ Division of Unclaimed Property from returning money owed to Floridians.
With the U.S. House Committee on Financial Services holding a hearing this week on the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), Florida Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis urged federal leaders to reauthorize the Florida subsidized program.
