Jacqueline Nicole Porter (born September 15, 1992) is an American politician from the state of Florida. Jack is a City Commissioner of Tallahassee, Florida, serving since November 16th, 2020.
Porter won her first election against incumbent City Commissioner Elaine Bryant on August 18th, 2020. Porter became the youngest female elected Tallahassee City Commissioner at the age of 28. Porter ran a campaign that was critical of the status quo perception of Tallahassee City Hall, which she deemed unresponsive to public engagement. "I think that the people want a say in how they’re governed, they want a say in how this city grows," Porter said. "Some of us were getting tired of being taken for granted."  Porter avoided a run-off election against her opponent by approximately 200 votes.
