CFO Jimmy Patronis: We Will Expedite Election Cybersecurity Payments
 
TALLAHASSEE, Fla.—Florida Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis directed his staff to expedite payments to local Supervisors of Elections for additional cybersecurity protection in Florida’s elections.
 
CFO Jimmy Patronis said, “Cybersecurity has been a top priority of mine, and Gov. Scott was right to make secure elections a priority. As Florida’s election season heats up, it’s imperative our local officials have the resources needed to ensure a fair election. Investing in additional measures shows a total commitment to protecting the integrity of our democracy.” 
 
Payments will be paid within 24 hours of submission and authorization in the Department of Financial Services’ payment system.
 
Seminole County Supervisor of Elections Michael Ertel said, “We are thrilled to hear CFO Jimmy Patronis will speed up the payment process and look forward to quickly purchasing additional hardware to protect the vital votes in Seminole County.” 
 
Martin County Supervisor of Elections Vicki Davis said, “Protecting the integrity of our elections process is one of my top priorities. I thank CFO Patronis for ensuring the funds we are requesting for cybersecurity aren’t held up in a bureaucratic process.”
