Tracy Magnotta is a Shareholder at the law firm of Anapol Weiss. Throughout her professional career, Tracy has been recognized for her outstanding legal work. From 2005 through 2012, Tracy was named a Pennsylvania Rising Star, which recognizes the top 2.5% of attorneys 40 years of age or younger, and from 2013 through 2019, she was named a Pennsylvania Super Lawyer.
Tracy received her bachelor’s degree from Bloomsburg University and then earned her law degree, cum laude, from Widener University School of Law. She and her husband Carmen settled in Lehigh Valley, where she grew up, since 2007. They have raised their family including 4 boys as residents of Lower Saucon.
Tracy is firmly committed to ensuring that Saucon Valley School District remains a top school district in the Lehigh Valley and beyond. It’s a well-known fact that a top school district attracts new residents, increases property values and brings the community together. Tracy herself is a first-generation college graduate in her family, and believes that education is the great equalizer, and every student in our district should be given the opportunity and tools to reach and unlock their highest potential.
Tracy is very sensitive to the large financial burden that school property taxes place on our local residents, especially the senior citizens. She is committed to to continue to leverage all available free resources and do her best to increase opportunities for our students without increasing the financial burden on our local taxpayers.
Tracy is running for reelection based on her record of the last 4 years. During this time she consistently voted to keep the school taxes low while making sure the district has resources to provide an excellent education for all kids. Tracy is proud of the fact that Saucon Valley was the only public school in this area that provided an option to all families to participate in 5-days a week school through this school year. She firmly believed that this happened because of the quality teachers, administrators, and support staff that are the backbone of our school community, the great facilities that have been well-maintained and are appropriate for our students, and the leadership of the district that made sure this option remains available to our kids.
In 2019, Tracy voted to approve a contract with the teachers and support staff. After decades of contentious negotiations in the past, the district and the staff came together to agree on an early bird contract. Tracy is proud of her role and is looking forward to provide critical contribution to the next round of contracts.
