Grover C. Robinson, IV, is a seventh generation Pensacolian and has served as the County Commissioner from District 4 since 2006.

Grover brings integrity, passion, and determination to local government. As an Escambia County Commissioner, he worked for greater efficiency and better management.
Grover fought for the largest tax rate reduction in Escambia County history. The county budget is less than 1% higher than when he was first elected Commissioner. County residents today enjoy lower taxes and improved services.
He found funds for the Roger Scott Tennis Center expansion, bollards for downtown events, holiday lights, and other investments that directly affect the quality of life throughout Pensacola.
He worked with 4H and the other commissioners to bring home 10,000 jobs at Navy Federal. He helped with financing that led to 400 new jobs at VT-MAE. He also helped IHMC finance a new building that will keep and grow world-class jobs in Pensacola.
Grover worked with the other coastal counties heavily impacted by the BP oil spill to pass the RESTORE Act and bring over $300 million to Northwest Florida and nearly $100 million to Escambia County.
He obtained $2 million for Pensacola and Perdido Bay estuary restoration as Chair of the Bay Area Resource Council.
He's forged connections and represented our area's interest in many state and regional organizations. He has served as Florida Association of Counties President, Florida Gulf Consortium Chair, and regional Transportation Planning Organization Chair.
