Former state Sen. Jeremy Ring of Broward County is poised to run for chief financial officer in 2018. The investor and former Yahoo executive had been looking at running for governor but told The Buzz that the CFO post became more and more intriguing as he analyzed the job.
Ring hasn’t committed to running, but sounds pretty close to it.
Other names floating as potential CFO candidates to succeed term limited Republican Jeff Atwater include Democratic Fort Lauderdale Mayor Jack Seiler, a former state House member and Republicans including state Sen. Tom Lee of Brandon, Lt. Gov. Carlos Lopez-Cantera, developer and former legislator Pat Neal of Bradenton.
