About

three quarter length

Not afraid to take a principled stand for public education
“willing to do the unglamorous on behalf of students and teachers…from windows and boilers to playgrounds and parking lots”
Quickly and consistently responsive to students, parents, teachers, and community members, via social media and at frequent office hours
“Worcester has been getting short changed on funding for schools for well over a decade and Tracy has been in Boston, in Malden, and working with the Legislature, to get it fixed and get our kids what they need and deserve.”
