Robin L. Fouce is a long­stand­ing advo­cate for pub­lic ser­vice and com­mu­ni­ty devel­op­ment, serv­ing as the City of Mar­i­on’s Chief of Staff, and pre­vi­ous­ly the pres­i­dent of the Mar­i­on Com­mon Council.

A sea­soned pub­lic ser­vant, Fouce explained her jour­ney in pub­lic office has been marked by ded­i­ca­tion and a relent­less pur­suit of excel­lence. Hav­ing earned the trust of con­stituents, Fouce won reelec­tion to the Com­mon Coun­cil, and was then appoint­ed as Chief of Staff by May­or Ronald Mor­rell, Jr. In addi­tion to Mor­rel­l’s elec­tion win mak­ing him Mar­i­on’s first Black may­or, his appoint­ment of Fouce made his­to­ry with her serv­ing as the first Black chief of staff for the City of Marion.

Fouce expressed, I am dri­ven by a deep-root­ed belief in the pow­er of local gov­ern­ment to shape a brighter future for all.”

Edu­ca­tion and con­tin­u­ous learn­ing are at the core of Fouce’s pro­fes­sion­al phi­los­o­phy. Armed with a sol­id foun­da­tion of edu­ca­tion and train­ing, I am a com­pe­tent leader as well as a cat­a­lyst for pos­i­tive change in the com­mu­ni­ty through pub­lic service.”

As Chief of Staff, Fouce works to bridge gaps, cham­pi­on ini­tia­tives, and ensure that city gov­ern­ment oper­ates effi­cient­ly and respon­sive­ly. She stat­ed her vision is clear. To be a com­mu­ni­ty where every voice is heard, and every indi­vid­ual is giv­en the oppor­tu­ni­ty to thrive.”

Beyond the polit­i­cal are­na, Fouce is a pas­sion­ate sports enthu­si­ast, find­ing inspi­ra­tion and cama­raderie in the world of ath­let­ics. Her love for sports mir­rors her approach to lead­er­ship, team­work, resilience, and a com­mit­ment to achiev­ing com­mon goals.

Fouce returned to her home­town, and said she remains stead­fast to make a dif­fer­ence and leave an indeli­ble mark on the City of Marion’s future.

To date, Fouce’s com­mit­ment to fos­ter­ing pos­i­tive change with­in the com­mu­ni­ty has made a last­ing impact on the lives of res­i­dents in Mar­i­on and Grant County.

Serv­ing in the realm of pub­lic ser­vice, she pledged, I stand as a bea­con of integri­ty, an advo­cate for progress, and a leader ded­i­cat­ed to build­ing a com­mu­ni­ty that will flour­ish for gen­er­a­tions to come.”
