Dear Viewpoint:

As a local practicing attorney, I have known, observed and worked with both Tracy Quackenbush Martin and Michael Freshour for many years. I am supporting Tracy for Commonwealth’s Attorney because of her outstanding character and exemplary skill as a lawyer. Tracy personifies the values that we should hope all public servants have: hard-working, respectful, unquestionable integrity, conscientious, personable and friendly, approachable, transparent, reverent, and utterly dedicated to the common good of all.

As a local trial lawyer, Tracy enjoys a well-deserved reputation for being prepared and fiercely committed to her clients’ interests. She is a smart and effective litigator. Tracy embodies the highest ideals of legal and community service.

Halifax County would be fortunate to have Tracy as our Commonwealth Attorney. I urge you to join with me in casting a proud vote for Tracy Quackenbush Martin on November 5th.

Brandon G. Hudson, Virgilina
