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[1].

Career

Porter won her first election against incumbent City Commissioner Elaine Bryant on August 18th, 2020[2]. 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." [2] Porter avoided a run-off election against her opponent by approximately 200 votes.[3]
