    GROVER….really pleased you WON and are looking forward to some True improvements to the entire City of Pensacola and not just pandering to a select bunch of movers & shakers.

    Main street from Barrancas Ave to Palafox is in severe need of FIXING not just more filling of pot holes.

    Now you’re the Mayor, it’s time to get a better – more recent – photo of yourself for these press releases. Show the REAL Grover, not fancied up like the previous Model Mayor had.

    @Anne, I am with you completely. Renaming the cit’s nickname and taking down a flag does not change history. Go back to the City of Five Flags and raise the correct Confederate Flag, not the battle flag.

    Mr. Robinson, Congratulations on your WIN.
    Perhaps now some working together and politely can happen in the City of Pensacola.
    Please reverse that lame “Upside of Florida” mess and put back “City of Five Flags”.

    Underhill won the primary because It was a closed primary and Scott Trotter ran too left when he should have ran as a moderate to conservative.
