Candidate Background Information: On June 17, 2009, Glenn Beck, conservative radio and television host and author, read on the air a letter he had just received from 53 year old, Democrat-turned-Republican, Arizona mother, taxpayer and patriot, Janet Contreras. Public reaction to the letter (which had been largely ignored by elected officials) was so positive and so strong, Beck not only posted the letter online, but he invited Janet to appear on his television show. Janet Contreras has listened and taken counsel with friends, family members, community and business leaders, and declared her candidacy for Congress in Arizona’s 4th congressional district.

In her own words: “Ours is a nation worth fighting for, and there is no place in more dire need of the input of honest, average, concerned citizens than the United States Congress. The current congress is taxing and spending us into fiscal and moral bankruptcy – fiscal bankruptcy for the budgets they pass and the trillions of dollars of debt they inflict upon us, and moral bankruptcy for the futures they are knowingly depriving our children and grandchildren in order to fulfill the terrible debts they owe the special interests and their own partisan leadership.
