TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Florida Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and State Fire Marshal Jimmy Patronis highlighted the 2021 accomplishments of the Department of Financial Services (DFS).
CFO and State Fire Marshal Jimmy Patronis said, “I am proud of the men and women of the Department who made the lives of everyday Floridians better. This was a big year for helping people. The last few years have been challenging for a lot of folks, but I will forever be proud of the men and women of the department who – despite all of the challenges – came to work every day to help people. From the State Fire Marshal’s Office who responded to storms and horrific disasters like Surfside, to our sworn law enforcement officials who are cracking down on the kind of insurance fraud that impacts all of our rates, our agency has never been stronger. We’ve got employees who are fielding calls each day to hold insurers accountable to policyholders, we’ve got teams of professionals who are returning hundreds of millions of dollars in unclaimed property back to their rightful owners, and we’ve got folks that are managing billions of dollars to ensure we’re being fiscally accountable to the taxpayer. Year-over-year, there is an endless amount of good that our public servants provide for Florida communities, and I’ll keep singing their praises as we enter the New Year.”
