Vote for Tracy

SoVaNow.com / October 31, 2013


Dear Viewpoint:

We are about to elect a commonwealth attorney on Tuesday, November 5, for Halifax County. The candidate of our choice is Tracy Quackenbush-Martin. We believe from personal experience that Tracy will be an outstanding representative for the citizens of Halifax County.

Tracy has represented us as our attorney and we have come to know her through our church and her leadership in youth activities; vestry; choir and by the way she has a beautiful voice.

Tracy graduated from Tulane University and received her Law degree from Washington and Lee University. We know her to be an enthusiastic person of character that will bring accountability to the office of commonwealth’s attorney.

We ask you to vote for Tracy Quackenbush-Martin on Tuesday, November 5.

Jane Carlton and Bill Confroy
