Meet Nancy


     Nancy Diane Young was elected to Tracy City Council in November 2012, reelected in 2016, appointed Mayor Pro Tem in 2019, and elected Mayor in 2020. Her desire to serve on the City Council continues to be a fresh, yet seasoned, proven and effective voice for the community of Tracy, echoing your voice because “Your Voice Matters!” Her commitment is to preserve our family-oriented community, place more focus on bringing new business, and jobs to Tracy while nurturing existing businesses; strengthening our public safety; and addressing youth and senior needs. As a champion of Measure V, she continues to strive diligently to ensure every penny is spent to honor our citizen’s voice in bringing much-needed amenities to Tracy.

     Nancy is a woman with passion and concern for people, not power and self promotion, to see the development of true community; the crossing of racial, generational, political, and economic boundaries, accentuating common goals between people; and helping others achieve growth and deliverance in their lives through mentorship and ministry. She’s authored 6 published books, attained a Bachelors degree in Mass Communications from UC Berkeley, a Masters in Business Administration from the University of Phoenix, a Doctorate in Theology from Good News Seminary and Bible College, a Minister’s License from Pentecostal Assemblies of the World, and Ordination as Pastor from Shield of Faith International.

Her investment in our next generation begins as the proud mother of four children (Benjamin, Michael, Lydia, and Nathaniel), four step-children (Charmayne, James, Jr., Shaun, and Shannon), and seven grandchildren (Benjamin, Leonard III, Omar, Shannon, Jr., Rachael, Shantez, and Sharmayne). 

     Nancy Young believes that if we, the community of Tracy, come together and collectively make our voices heard, we can make Tracy an even better place to live and do business. As a community we are poised to bring many new businesses to Tracy and she will continue to wave the banner that Tracy has a lot to offer, and rally to have a full complement of positive things to offer that will attract business and families alike, including a safe community, a variety of housing, including affordable housing options, and recreational activities for our youth and other opportunities for our future.
