What does it take to be the Best of Tracy?

I

n this town of 80,000, with thousands coming, going and passing through each day and with hundreds of businesses and other groups, it takes more than just doing a job well. To stand out in Tracy, it takes a continued commitment to excellence. And while our town in many ways retains the feel of a small-town community, the task of identifying the best of the best is more than any one person — or even newspaper staff — could hope to do well. That’s why, every year, the Press asks you, its discriminating readers, to share your favorites around town. Because it takes a lot to be considered the best. And according to their customers and neighbors, these businesses, people and places have what it takes to be the tops in Tracy.

“What is your ‘best of Tracy’?” — Asked in downtown Tracy

“I like Main Street Music, and really a lot of downtown.” — Anthony Blake

“I like the Tracy High football games.” — Bambie Russell
