JENNRO, LLC is a consulting agency and political action committee incorporated in 1999 by former Mayor of Birmingham Richard Arrington, Jr with offices at 2170 Highland Avenue in the Alamerica Bank building.

The company, which is co-owned by Matthew Arrington provides political and educational consulting. In 2003 it conducted a study concluding that Governor Bob Riley's proposed "Amendment One" tax legislation deserved support from Alabama voters. Their findings were published in the Voter News Network.

James Glen chairs the political action committee, which is also known as the Jefferson County Voter Education and Registration PAC. During the 2009 Birmingham City Council election JENNRO's PAC contributed $38,900 to a slate of candidates that included Elias Hendricks and Rolanda Hollis. The group has reported large contributions from Waldrep, Stewart and Kendrick, Hoar Construction, Walter Howlett, John McMahon, and from other PACs headed by Donald Watkins, Jimmy Brewer and John Teague.
