Janet Looker (born 1938) is a British Labour Party politician and councillor. She has been a councillor for Guildhall Ward continuously since 1985, making her the longest-serving councillor in City of York Council. Template:Infobox officeholderLooker was born in Bristol and brought up in the small south Gloucestershire market town of Chipping Sodbury. Her dad was a small-holder and market gardener. Her parents were what she called 'old-fashioned West Country Liberals', but she herself has always been Labour. She joined the party went she went to Bristol University to study English in the Wilson era.

In the mid-1960s, she met academic Robert Looker while working in a library. They married and subsequently moved north in 1965. Robert began teaching students politics at the University of York. In the late 1960s and early 1970s, they had three children, two girls and one boy. After her children were old enough to go to school Looker started thinking about how she would make a career for herself, and in the late 1970s did a two-year course in law at Leeds Polytechnic (now Leeds Beckett University). She stood as the Labour Party candidate for Guildhall in the 1985 North Yorkshire County Council election, receiving 1,079 votes compared to the Conservative's 733 and the Liberal/SDP's 446. She was re-elected to this seat in 1989 and 1993.

In 1995, York was granted unitary authority status, and thus was given its own metropolitan council. She was again re-elected as a councillor for Guildhall in the 1995 election.
