About Jim Frazier

jim-frazier-headshotJim Frazier, a former local small-business owner, was elected to the California State Assembly in November, 2012 to represent the 11th Assembly District. He is Chair of the Assembly Transportation Committee and a member of the Accountability and Administrative Review, Insurance and Veterans Affairs Committees, as well as Chair of the Select Committee in Improving Bay Area Transportation Systems, and Chair of the Select Committee on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities.

Frazier became involved in public service after a family tragedy. On December 16, 2000, his two daughters were in a head-on auto collision caused by black ice on their way to Lake Tahoe. The accident was fatal for his oldest daughter, and left his younger daughter in critical condition. This unfortunate tragedy sparked Frazier’s interest in highway safety and transportation infrastructure improvements, which led to his further involvement in public service.

Since being elected, Frazier has made it his mission to be accessible to all of his constituents. To accomplish that, he has held numerous community coffees and mobile district offices. Frazier also continues to be a strong advocate for the Sacramento-San Joaquin Bay Delta. As a member of the Delta Protection Commission, his continuous efforts are focused on the protection of fish and wildlife, safeguarding farmers and their flourishing agricultural industry, the promotion of water conservation and improved water quality, the responsible management of land use and development, and the preservation of the environmental and economic viability of the Delta.
