Vesctor Chairman Receives Additional Reward

John Rood, the founder of The Vestcor Companies and a recipient of millions in taxpayer dollars during the Delaney years, was appointed the Finance Chairman of the Republican Party of Florida. Rood, a prolific fundraiser for the GOP, had previously served in the high-stress role of Ambassador to the Bahamas under the administration of George W. Bush.

“Ambassador Rood is both a longtime supporter of the Party and a successful entrepreneur,” noted (RPOF Chairman Jim) Greer. “We look forward to working with him to develop our short and long-term financial goals and to secure the resources necessary to elect Republican candidates across Florida.”
