Jeremy Ring, a former Florida State Senator and one of the early innovators at Yahoo, will speak 1:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 13 at Provisions restaurant, located at 222 Reid Avenue.

Ring will dine at Provisions and speak with fellow patrons at the restaurant. If you would like to attend this event, please make reservations with Provisions at 229-9200 by Sept. 11 and tell them this is for the Jeremy Ring lunch. This is a dutch-treat lunch setting not a keynote speaker event.

Ring is a start-up tech pioneer, innovator, and committed public servant with a sterling record of accomplishment in business and in the Florida Senate.

After opening the first East Coast office of the internet company Yahoo out of his apartment at age 25, Jeremy spent several years as an executive in the tech and innovation sector before moving to Florida to raise his family and winning election to the state senate. He served in the Florida Senate from 2006-2016, when his district was redistricted.

Ring is now running for Florida Chief Financial Officer (CFO).

“We’re thrilled to welcome Senator Jeremy Ring to Gulf County to share his vision for moving Florida forward,” said Andrea De La Vega, newly elected Chair of the Gulf County Democrats. “Chief Financial Officer is a crucial, but often overlooked cabinet position that touches the lives of all Floridians.

“As a former technology executive and state legislator, Senator Ring has the business and legislative experience and skills that we need in our CFO.”
