Jackson GOP Club President Todd Porter Overwhelmingly Loses No-Confidence Vote

A month after refusing to recognize a floor vote endorsing Mike Reina for another term as mayor, Jackson GOP Club President Todd Porter got a resounding slap in the face Wednesday night as he overwhelmingly lost a motion of no-confidence vote in his leadership.

Additionally, Porter and his allies put forward nominations of Andy Kearn for Council and Marty Flemming for mayor, but again, a supermajority of Club members voted them down.

The vote comes amid deep divisions within the Jackson GOP Club, and advances the likelihood of two separate Republican mayoral tickets this November – one with the support of the majority of the Republican club, and the other led by Porter and his handler, Clara Glory, who calls herself the “Queen of Jackson.”

Last week, a judge reviewing the legality of the Club members’ endorsement of Mike Reina for mayor said that the Club’s official screening committee must be allowed to put their official pick for the nomination up for a vote. The judge said that because there was an upcoming meeting, he would allow the regular Club process to work itself out.

However, now that the Club’s screening committee’s picks for Council and Mayor were voted down last night, attorneys for the Jackson GOP Club members are filing a new motion in court to force the Club to recognize the nomination of Mike Reina for mayor.
