Money Drives Political Power. Transparency Reveals Reality and Truth.

The 2020 election season is cranking up and is expected roar through next year. Decisions about candidates require more than their campaign promises. Following the money trail reveals alliances that are not apparent in campaign platforms, speeches or flashy slogans.

Transparency Texas

Tracy Marshall, Chairman of the Board for Transparency Texas, will join us this month to debunk some popular myths about money in politics.

  • What’s the truth about so-called “Dark Money”?
  • When is there too much money in politics?
  • How can you have an out-sized impact on the 2020 elections?

Tracy Marshall - Chairman of the Board of Transparency Texas

Tracy received both her B.A. and her law degree from Duke University. She practiced employment law in the Dallas office of Gardere & Wynne and later with McKenna & Cuneo. After a few years, she “retired” from the law to focus on her family. She and Billy moved to Midland and have four kids between the ages of 17 and 23. In 2002, Tracy and Billy helped found the Grammar School at Midland Classical Academy, and Tracy served there for many years in various roles.

In 2016, Tracy was able to meld her love for politics, Texas, and freedom by joining with several other concerned citizens to start Transparency Texas. When she’s not managing the website, Tracy enjoys working out and spending time with Billy and her kids.
