Results that Make a Difference.

Results that Make a Difference.

My record is clear – I know how to the get results people want. During my term as County Commissioner, we lowered taxes and spent less while improving county services and reducing debt. We have new jobs, a stronger economy, and better neighborhoods.

I’ve been at the decision-making table, established connections, found the money, and worked through the system to make good things happen. Whether it was securing more jobs and development in the area, funding environmental projects, or delivering on neighborhood improvements – I got the job done. Listed below are some of the things I have accomplished for our community.

My goal is to make Pensacola and Northwest Florida better for all of us today but also generations to come. If you too want to see us make these improvements, then I need your support and vote for Mayor of the City of Pensacola.

— Grover C. Robinson, IV
