Seattle, Washington – September 5, 2014: Washington State Veterans Bar Association announced today in a PRESS RELEASE that it is endorsing Tracy Flood for Kitsap County District Court Judge, Position 1. Ms. Flood has demonstrated a strong commitment to veteran's issues and policies that advocate improving the lives of Washington State's 650,000 veterans.

As a member of the United State Navy, Tracy Flood served from 1986-1990. Ms. Flood attended Class “A” school and received a letter of commendation, both while serving on active duty. In 1990, she received an honorable discharge and was released from active duty in Bremerton, Washington. She then served another four years in the United States Naval Reserves.

After her military service she continued to make contributions to the Veterans community as a member of the American Legion. She has also represented veterans and service-members in both domestic relations and criminal cases across the state. Ms. Flood is currently leading an innovative program to bring a legal “wills clinic” to local veterans through the Kitsap County veteran's stand-down.

"I'm honored to receive the endorsement of the Washington State Veterans Bar Association," said Kitsap County District Court judicial candidate Tracy Flood.

I look forward to working with them and the veterans community in Kitsap County to improve the lives of veterans and service-members in our community.”

The Washington State Veterans Bar Association (WSVBA) has endorsed her candidacy and I hope the military and veteran's community in Kitsap County will follow suit,” said, WSVBA board member John Tymczyszyn.
