Compare the Candidates

As an attorney and former mayor, I know now more than ever, we need to stick together. If you have questions, concerns or need help with resources not found here, please reach out directly with a call or text to 404-441-9641 or jannquell@electjannquell.com.

The status quo has gone on long enough. People are being left behind and its time for a new way forward. That time is now.

Why I’m Running

People are being left behind. I’m running for Congress because every person deserves a job that pays a living wage, access to quality public education and access to healthcare.

As a former Mayor in this District, I am the only candidate who has actually governed and been part of the legislative process. In a district made up of small cities, it is important to understand the needs of local government and the communities they serve. I have the experience, qualifications and compassion to lead into the future.

Accomplishments as Mayor

  • Led the successful turnaround of a city in decline
  • Obtained city’s first ever bond rating
  • Built new energy friendly government center
  • Expanded healthcare coverage for city employees
  • Secured over 50 million dollars in federal funding 
  • Implemented 20 mile city wide trail project
  • Provided excellent constituent services
  • Increased economic opportunity and jobs
  • Improved quality of life amenities and lowered crime

I am running to serve the entire district because it’s time to make sure the Federal Government is working for all of us. With a district as diverse as the 13th, we need to make sure we are fighting for opportunity and equity for all.

About Living in the 13th

When candidates run for Congress and live outside the district, though permitted by the U.S. Constitution, there is always a discussion around that candidate’s motives and viability. Mayor Peters has the following response in her own words:
