Democrat Janelle Stelson has been telling our stories for more than three decades. Now, she’s taking on Congressman Scott Perry to be our voice in Washington.

The Leader Who Can Defeat Scott Perry

As the head of the ultra-conservative Freedom Caucus, Congressman Scott Perry personifies what’s wrong with Washington. Every Democratic and Republican Member of Congress in Pennsylvania voted to give a gold medal to the police officers defending the Capitol on January 6… except for Congressman Perry. Every Democratic and Republican Member of Congress in Pennsylvania voted to protect Asian Americans from hate crimes… except for Congressman Perry. Every Democratic and Republican Member of Congress in Pennsylvania voted to strengthen protections for children who are victims of sexual abuse… except for Congressman Perry. Janelle Stelson is the candidate who can bring together Democrats, Independents, and Republicans to replace Congressman Perry and restore common sense leadership in Central Pennsylvania.

Meet Janelle

As an Emmy Award–winning broadcast journalist, Janelle Stelson has spent her life listening and talking directly to the people of Central Pennsylvania.

Born in Fairbanks, Alaska, Janelle grew up in the Seattle area, the oldest of 4 sisters. Her mom was a receptionist at the Naval shipyard in Bremerton and her father was a state trooper and teacher. She graduated from the University of Puget Sound and later moved to Harrisburg to join WHTM-TV as a Reporter and Weather Anchor.

In 1997, Janelle joined Central Pennsylvania’s biggest station, WGAL-TV 8, as News Anchor. Her 11 PM show has consistently boasted the highest ratings in the region. In its annual poll, Senior News has repeatedly named her “Best News Anchor.”

Janelle’s reporting has taken her from Jubilee Day in Mechanicsburg to the monster truck races at the Gratz Fair, from the frontlines in Kosovo to the still-smoldering Twin Towers following 9/11. She’s tirelessly shined a light on our issues, big and small—from saving factory jobs to solving elderly homeowners’ rat problems.

For far too long, Scott Perry has put his extremist agenda above the needs of Dauphin, York, and Cumberland Counties. He’s voted against bipartisan legislation to improve our roads and bridges. He’s taken money from big pharma and voted against allowing the government to negotiate lower prescription drug prices. He’s currently under investigation for his role in the violence on January 6. He voted to defund the FBI. And Congressman Perry was the only Member of Congress from Pennsylvania—Republican or Democrat—to oppose giving a medal to the police officers who defended the Capitol on Jan. 6. The list goes on and on.

In our communities, we need to be safe. We need to be healthy. We need to be well educated. We need good-paying jobs that can support our families. More than anything, we need someone we know we can trust in Washington. Join us.
