The wife of the COS mayoral candidate announces her general candidacy for the City Council Local News
Jane Northrup Glenn, wife of Colorado Springs mayoral candidate Darryl Glenn, has announced she will seek an at-large seat on the City Council.
She is the first to announce her candidacy for one of the three at-large seats up for grabs in the April 2023 city election, as well as the job of mayor.
Those seats are now held by Bill Murray, who has been ruled out of seeking a third term, Tom Strand, also ruled out, and Wayne Williams. Strand and Williams have said they will run for mayor.
Mayor John Suthers is also term-limited.
Glenn says she is an entrepreneur and author who opposes government intrusion into people’s lives and supports “the minimal use of federal and state subsidies,” according to her release.
Glenn bases her philosophy of government on Christianity. In her 2020 book, God struck back: To overthrow the United States government to free the peopleshe “shares her personal story of transformation from a lover of Jesus who couldn’t pray her way out of a paper bag to a powerful intercessory vessel through which God protects and redirects the lives of others,” according to a description in Amazon.com
The lock also says, “There is increased activity in the supernatural realm as we approach the millennial reign of Jesus, and the government and political arenas are hot spots. It is more important now than ever that a political party not be the strongest influence of a Christian in determining how to vote and what position to take on issues. Complete submission and obedience to Jesus Christ alone is the guide.”
In her release, Northrup Glenn says, “I believe Colorado Springs has a divine duty now to become a beacon for people seeking freedom… The reason I’m running for city council is to confront the global agenda at the local level by severing the financial ties between us and the government in every level.“
Northrup Glenn founded Staffing Authorities, the release said, a prototype Christian business that specialized in criminal workers and was recognized by the state of Colorado in 2016 and named “1 of 21 Gospel-Led Businesses” by Ministry Today.
“Northrup Glenn’s current business prototype is the American Christian Market Authority, a membership-based staffing solution that provides housing and other benefits to its workers,” the release said. “ACMA is a member of the Colorado Springs Chamber, but not ready to launch.”
She previously served as director of resource development for the United Way of Larimer County and as vice president of government affairs for the Pikes Peak Association of Realtors. She has also worked as an account manager for data center services and as a contractor for a real estate company.
Her priorities include supporting essential services such as police and fire, opposing financial incentives and subsidies for builders and developers, and preventing the government from having a role in housing affordability.
Colorado Springs has never had a serving Council member who was married to a sitting mayor, at least in recent memory. The couple got married in 2016.
