CFO seeks Citizens’ lobbying disclosure transparency

May 21, 2018

Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis is trying to bring the public into his campaign to force disclosure of lobbying targeting Citizens Property Insurance Corp., Florida’s property insurer of last resort.

Patronis wrote to Citizens executives earlier this month, serving notice of his campaign for “transparency” for the organization. He wants the state-sponsored company to deliver options during the next Cabinet meeting.

Now he’s keeping up the pressure via his “Weekly Rundown” newsletter.

Patronis observed that Citizen insures more than 440,000 policyholders who have a stake in the company’s dealings with “special interests.”

“Transparency ensures accountability. That is not up for debate,” Patronis wrote.
