Laredo, Atwater

Fla CFO Jeff Atwater was on hand at Tuesday’s Palm Beach County Commission meeting as the county honored activist Lynn Laredo for work fighting financial exploitation of seniors.

“I’m a Ms., but I’m not a mess,” quipped Laredo, who proudly gave her age: 92.

Atwater, of North Palm Beach, said Laredo developed a video to educate people over 80 about the risks of identity theft and sometimes dresses as “Wonder Woman” for seminars.

“There is a tremendous need for ongoing commitment to financial literacy,” Atwater said, standing alongside Laredo.
