About the Candidate: 

Tracy writes, “I am just an ordinary person; I am not a career politician. My principal qualification for asking to be your Representative in the U.S. House of Representatives is that I have never been to law school, have never run for public office, and have worked all my adult life. I am running on the Libertarian Party ticket as a person who loves liberty and wants to take a principled stand to take back the personal liberties which Congresses, past and present, have legislated away. I am asking for your help and support to change that. I am asking for your help in electing ORDINARY PEOPLE (like me) to Congress for a change! A Class of '68 graduate in my hometown of Knoxville (Tennessee), I took my Bachelor of Arts education at the University of Tennessee in the early seventies; and earned a bachelor of science of nursing at the University of Texas Health Science Center (San Antonio) School of Nursing in the late eighties. I am a former officer of the Nurse Corps of the U.S. Army Reserve; and was a professional Registered Nurse for over twenty-five years. I have served overseas (Gulf War I) in Germany and in Belgium. My specialty area was in critical care (medical, surgical, and coronary intensive care), as well as in hospice care for the terminally ill. For the past four years I have turned myself into an artist and an “armchair expert” in the language of ancient Hebrew. My principal artwork can be seen at
