Merritt Island, Florida – Tyler Sirois, candidate for the District 51 seat in the Florida House of Representatives, won the Republican Party of Brevard’s Official 2018 Straw Poll today. The straw poll and family picnic was attended by approximately 600 Brevard County Republicans at the Melbourne Auditorium and drew representation from local and statewide candidates. Supervisor of Elections Lori Scott conducted the straw poll using touchscreen voting equipment.
“I am proud to win the support of our local Republican Party. Our focus on returning vocational and technical training to our public schools and collaborating with local, state, and federal partners to restore our Indian River Lagoon are issues important to local conservatives,” Sirois said.
Sirois announced at the event he was recently endorsed by Florida Right to Life and received an A-rating from the National Rifle Association. Sirois has been endorsed by Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey and Business Voice of Florida Space Coast.
