Statement of CFO Alex Sink on the 2010 Florida Governors Race

Tallahassee, FL Florida CFO Alex Sink today issued the following statement regarding the 2010 Florida governors race:

Floridians from Pensacola over to Jacksonville and all the way down to Key West are facing enormous challenges. Each and every day, the global financial crisis tests our families, our economy and our resolve.

In unique and challenging times like these, our state needs a new and different kind of leadership.

Thousands of Floridians have told me they need leaders committed to protecting the middle class, strengthening our economy and giving our families a fighting chance. As a businesswoman and working mom, I couldnt agree more.

Before the people of Florida elected me their CFO, I spent nearly three decades in business creating jobs and economic opportunity in communities all across our state.

During my short time in state government, a couple of things have become crystal clear: Tallahassees tired old ways of doing business just arent enough to answer the urgent new challenges we face. And a state government influenced by narrow special interests cannot put the best interests of everyday Floridians first.

Today, Im announcing I will be a candidate for Governor of Florida in the November 2010 election, and put my business experience and know-how to work restoring our economy.

And, as Floridas CFO, Ill continue using my business experience to cut wasteful spending, crack down on financial fraud and reform state contracts.

For too long, weve had to tolerate a state government that puts playing politics ahead of helping families. Together, we can change all that, and give our state a fresh start.
