Lucy has nearly 30 years of legislative and political experience in state government, the U.S. House of Representatives, and the U.S. Senate. During most of that time, she served as chief of staff to Senator Byron Dorgan, a member of the Ways and Means Committee in the House, and then a member of the Appropriations, Commerce, Energy and Indian Affairs Committees in the Senate. Prior to her Capitol Hill experience, Lucy worked with then North Dakota T ax Commissioner Byron Dorgan.

Lucy has also used her extensive campaign experience to help women seek and win public office.
