As we celebrate the holidays, I encourage you to take a moment to think about the brave men and women who are working around the clock to keep us safe. Our first responders, firefighters and military members answer the call 24/7/365 and need our support and prayers as they work to protect us as we gather together with loved ones. Without their service, we wouldn't be able to enjoy the holidays here at home!

Happy Holidays from CFO Patronis image

On Monday, at a meeting of the State Board of Administration (SBA) Trustees, I joined Governor Ron DeSantis and Attorney General Ashley Moody in voting for measures to survey the level of investments the SBA has in Chinese owned businesses, establish a revocation of proxy voting authority by fund managers, and review of SBA’s corporate governance principles to clarify how fund managers should vote in the future to protect American interests. I take my fiduciary responsibilities seriously and I think the SBA needs to start asking harder questions when it comes to whether investing anymore in China is a good idea. It seems limiting our exposure to China is not only good for our country, but it is the financially prudent thing to do for our state.

Lastly, this week, I presentado Trooper Horlkins Saget of the Florida Highway Patrol with a Cabinet Resolution honoring his service and recognizing him as the 2020 Trooper of the Year. During holidays, birthdays and anniversaries – these heroes are always ready to fight for Floridians. Trooper Saget is no different, as he put his own life at risk to protect others and I could not be more grateful for his selfless service. Congratulations to Trooper Saget on this tremendous achievement and thank you to our dedicated troopers statewide for their service to our great state.

Continue to spread the holiday spirit that is all around us now and throughout the New Year. From my family to yours, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
