Brandt’s employees were excited to have the opportunity to meet with U.S Congressman Southerland to discuss economic, environmental, and educational issues that affect Florida and the nation. Richard Wise, Brandt’s President, welcomed Representative Southerland stating, “Brandt focuses on national projects with the Federal government and different state agencies. These projects help retain Florida’s exceptional talent and create new jobs in Tallahassee and the panhandle region.”
Representative Southerland complimented Brandt’s staff on its awareness of his areas of concern for legislation to improve and stimulate the economy while recognizing critical issues with the environment, education, and social programs.
Representative Southerland visited over 50 of the company’s 125 employees, many of which are also students at local colleges and universities, to discuss important issues in the community and in Florida. Kyle Baker, a sophomore at Florida State University, asked Representative Southerland about some of the effects of the 2010 panhandle oil spill. “How do we continue to quickly get businesses back on their feet after disaster without adding more damage to the environment that was affected?”
Southerland discussed his ideas on balancing both economic issues and the environmental recovery in order to mitigate each issue caused by the disaster.
