Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

Nancy's political philosophy is that of transparency, integrity, and personal investment. Nancy believes that all actions that effect our community should be public, transparent and have a mechanism for accountability. She is one who believes in doing the right thing at all times and truthful no matter what. She believes that integrity is in front of people and extends behind closed doors. It's saying and doing the same thing. Lastly, A Council position is one of servitude and should extend to personal investment throughout the community. In addition to the City Council, she serves as Director of a Youth Non-Profit, Living on Purpose, the Lead for 8 years of The Student Discovery Program that mentors 10th graders at Kimball High, Past President and Board Member of the Kiwanis, as well as Key Club Advisor at Mountain House High, a Board Member of The Boys and Girls Club, an active advocate for the Golden Agers Senior Group, a Co-Pastor of His Image Ministries, A past Juneteenth and co-Education Chair, yet active member of the Tracy African American Association, etc. 

Position Papers

Measure V

Measure V will give Tracy a real opportunity to complete the Quality of Life projects as well as bolster our city's infrastructure and bridge gaps in our structural deficit. We want Tracy to be great and have great amenities to offer. It's then up to us to say YES and support the measure that will do that. It's important to understand it is a 20 year commitment because that is the base number of years to be able to bond the money. We could actually bond the money to build facilities now instead of waiting year by year as we accumulate the money in order to start building. MY VOTE IS YES!!! Our community and families are worth it.
