Florida State Rep. Dwayne Taylor received the Florida Professional Firefighters Legislator of the Year award on June 6. The award was presented to him during the 69th annual conference for Professional Firefighters held at the Hilton Daytona Beach Oceanfront Resort.
“Nobody deserves that award more than him,” commented Mike Tyrell, Daytona Beach Fire Department Union President 1162. “There’s no doubt about that. That guy is destined for greatness and we will be by his side the whole way.”
Taylor has remained an advocate for the state’s firefighters, EMTs and law enforcement officers.
“I will continue to fight in Tallahassee for all of our first responders,” stated Taylor.
Taylor’s legislative assistant, Shanneé Green also received the Legislative Assistant of the Year Award at the conference.
