When Jeremy Ring first moved to Florida from New York City, he hated it.
He said so in the prologue in his 2017 memoir, We were Yahoo!
But since he moved to Fort Lauderdale in 2001, Ring found a rekindled affinity for the state. He served Parkland as a state senator from 2006 to 2016 and is now running for statewide office: Chief Financial Officer of Florida. His opponent, Republican Jimmy Patronis currently holds the office after being appointed in 2017 by Gov. Rick Scott.
