TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Governor Rick Scott could not have made a better choice than selecting my friend and Florida TaxWatch leader Syd Kitson to serve on the Board of Governors of the State University System. Syd was highly effective serving as the innovative Chairman of the TaxWatch Center for Health & Aging, helping TaxWatch be a leader in securing legislation on Telehealth and expanded scope of practice for nurse and allied health professionals in the 2016 Legislative Session. Syd has also served for many years on the TaxWatch Board of Trustees and Executive Committee. He is not only a friend, but he is a tremendous voice for all Floridians.
From Gov. Rick Scott’s press release: Kitson, 58, of West Palm Beach, is the CEO of Kitson & Partners. He received his bachelor’s degree from Wake Forest University and had a notable career in the National Football League, playing offensive guard for both the Green Bay Packers and the Dallas Cowboys. Kitson is appointed to fill a vacant seat for a term beginning December 8, 2016 and ending January 6, 2017. The appointment is subject to confirmation by the Florida Senate.
