County Association Presents Robinson With Presidential Advocacy Award

June 30, 2013

The Florida Association of Counties (FAC) presented Escambia County Commissioner Grover Robinson with the Presidential Advocacy Award during the 2013 FAC Annual Conference & Exposition in Hillsborough County last week.

“I am proud to be part of an organization like FAC that has the Florida citizen’s best interest in mind,” said Robinson, IV.  “It is a great honor to be recognized for making a positive impact in Escambia County and I look forward to collaborating with other county commissioners to do the best work for the people.”

Commissioner Robinson was an invaluable asset to FAC during the Legislative Session and showed exceptional commitment to advancing public policy.  Robinson took time to educate legislators on FAC’s priority issues, specifically the State-County Cost Share of Medicaid.

“It is public servants like Commissioner Robinson that ensure our local communities have the authority to respond to the demands of their citizens,” said FAC Executive Director Chris Holley, “Commissioner Robinson’s support in our efforts to create an equitable and fair solution to Medicaid cost share was essential in getting rid of the cumbersome and erroneous billing system that has been in place for years.”

The Presidential Advocacy Award is given annually to those county commissioners from around the state who have shown exceptional leadership in partnering with FAC to advance the counties’ legislative agenda.

    It is a sad that an individual of Mr Robinsons talents, cannot be promoted to a post outside and beyond the limitations and boundaries of Escambia County.
