Davis held lead over 7 candidates to win seat on Tracy City Council
Contentious city council race during a Presidential Election Year ends with Davis taking the number one spot
After several long and grueling months of campaigning in a race where eight candidates vied for just two council seats, longtime Tracy resident and community advocate, Eleassia Davis emerged as the top vote-getter. Davis was sworn in ceremonially by her mother just a day before officially swearing in before the city clerk at City Hall on December 15th, where Davis participated in her first council meeting as an elected official.
Davis, a small business owner and community advocate stated that she is "thankful for the opportunity to serve and is committed to serving in the best interest of Tracy residents. Running for office was challenging but when I put the city's budget issues, the closure of our businesses, trying to keep people safe while respecting their right to personal accountability, addressing the unsheltered, housing insecurity and the lack of infrastructure, lack of high wage jobs, lack of resources, declining quality of life...When all of those things are put in to perspective- nothing is more challenging or more important to me at the moment than getting our house in order."
