PANAMA CITY — Florida's next chief financial officer will be one of Gov. Rick Scott's original political allies.

Scott on Monday turned to former state Rep. Jimmy Patronis, 45, to complete the term of Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater, who will leave the elected Cabinet office Friday for a job at Florida Atlantic University. Scott said he wanted someone who could “step in and do a really good job.”
