I know Tracy

SoVaNow.com / October 31, 2013


Dear Viewpoint:

I have never written a letter of support to any political candidate before. Well I am supporting Tracy Quackenbush Martin for Commonwealths Attorney. Tracy Quackenbush Martin is a great defense attorney and has all the abilities and knowledge to be an excellent Commonwealths Attorney. I have known her for many years on a professional and personal level as a friend. While working for Halifax County, I have witnessed a great attorney that is fair, tough and cares about people. She is one of the smartest, capable, tough and fairest attorneys that I have seen over the past 22 years working in the law enforcement profession. If you see her in public, she is friendly and cares enough to remember your name and speak. That to me shows she cares about people. I think that Halifax County deserves a professional like Tracy Quackenbush Martin in the office of Commonwealths Attorney.
