Tyler Sirois heading to Florida House with water, vocational education in mind
Republican state Rep. Tyler Sirois heads into his first term in the Florida House with high hopes of addressing two widespread Florida issues that have a particularly strong impact on his Brevard County, water quality protection and vocational education.
And he’ll be looking for ways to use the Florida Forever fund to address the water issues, and to find ways to better link industry and educators to expand vocation education opportunities.
Sirois, who succeeded former state Rep. Tom Goodson in Florida House District 51 covering northeast Brevard, has seen the Space Coast’s long struggles with pollution mucking up the Indian River Lagoon, and of the region’s economy struggling even as it faces a shortage of well-trained technology workers.
Those are two issues that Gov.-elect Ron DeSantis made priorities in his campaign and Sirois said he is ready to join those efforts.
“I’m excited to hear the governor-elect talk a lot about vocational and technical training. It’s important to me here on the Space Coast, here in Brevard County. That was my number one priority as a candidate,” Sirois said. “Connecting our employers with our educators is going to be important to maintaining our vibrant workforce.”
