Tracy was elected to the City Council in 2009, after wrapping up a three decade career with the Ventura Police Department, including six years as Police Chief.
Council newcomer Cheryl Heitmann will serve as Deputy Mayor.
Heitmann was elected in November, and is well known in the community as Executive Director of the Ventura Music Festival.
