“Hi, I’m Grover” beats “No Tax Tom”
September 6, 2006
Grover Robinson, IV, upset career politician and 12-year incumbent Tom Banjanin for the Escambia County Commission: 6,683 – 4,027…by 62.4%. Just a week before, we had heard Banjanin had a 5 point lead, but there was still a large undecided.
Many believed the Community Maritime Park vote and the Robinson vote were closely linked. Both depended on the under 40 year voters. While we don’t know the actual turnout for that group, it appears that it did get out and vote.
Here are the Precinct Details.
