CFO Patronis: America is Getting Back to Work

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Today, Florida Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis issued a statement following a federal Bureau of Labor Statistics report that the U.S. economy added 2.5 million jobs in May. According to federal data, the nationwide unemployment rate dropped from 14.7% in April to 13.3% in May. 
CFO Jimmy Patronis said, “These numbers represent the spirit of our nation and demonstrate that America is getting back to work. For everything going on in the world, our businesses are opening their doors and people want to get this economy going again. I am thrilled to see that the government mandated shutdown didn’t extinguish the embers that are now fueling this recovery. The Trump Administration deserves a round of applause for working with Congress to inject critical resources into our communities, and I will continue hoping and praying that we’ll see this progress through summer and into the fall.”
