Juan Carlos Marino (born October 23, 1963) is an Argentine Radical Civic Union (UCR) politician. He sits in the Argentine Senate representing La Pampa Province.


Born in rural Villa Maza, Buenos Aires Province,[1] Marino grew up in nearby Miguel Riglos, La Pampa Province. A farmer in his youth, he became active in politics in 1983 as a member of the local chapter of the centrist UCR; the party's standard bearer, Raúl Alfonsín, had just been elected President of Argentina after a 7-year dictatorship. He married Daniela García, and they had two daughters.[2]

Marino held several party positions and in 1991 was elected to the City Council. He was elected Mayor of Miguel Riglos in 1995 with 53% of the vote, becoming the town's first UCR figure to be elected to the position; he was re-elected in 1999 with 74% of the vote.[2] Marino was elected to the Argentine Senate for La Pampa in 2003. He was appointed secretary of the UCR caucus in the Senate in 2005.[2]

Marino was nominated as candidate for Governor of La Pampa in 2007 as the top of the FrePam (Frente Pampeano Cívico y Social) ticket, a coalition between the provincial UCR, Socialist Party, FreGen, MID, and dissident members of ARI. He was defeated by Justicialist Party nominee Óscar Jorge by 17%, however.[3]

Marino was reelected to the Senate in 2009, and in 2010 became 1st Vice-President of the Senate (the body's second-highest post).[2] He ran for governor on the FrePam ticket again in 2011, but was again defeated by Óscar Jorge (the incumbent) by 15%.[4]
