JIM ROUT'S NEW JOB & RICK ROUT'S NEW PROBLEM

Posted By on Fri, Sep 13, 2002 at 4:00 AM

The Flyer has learned that former Shelby County Mayor Jim Rout will take on the duties next week of president of Jack Morris Auto Glass Company.

Morris, the founder, owner, and namesake of the company, was finance chairman in the successful campaign of new Shelby County Mayor A C Wharton and confided the change of leadership privately Thursday night after a fund-raiser at the Racquet Club for Mayor Wharton.

Simultaneously Shelby County Republicans were holding the party's monthly steering committee meeting at the GOP's Victory 2002 headquarters at Park Place Mall, and voted 18-8 for a motion introduced by new county commissioner John Willingham that asked Rick Rout, the Young Republican chairman and the former mayor's son, to resign from the committee for what several Republicans considered questionable emails and statements during the mayor's race.

The statements were critical of GOP mayoral nominee George Flinn.
