Jim Frazier, State Assembly

I am a thoughtful public servant who makes decisions based on merit.

Representing East County in the California State Assembly is my greatest honor. As Chair of Assembly Transportation Committee, I fought for $5 billion annually to improve our aging roads, highways, bridges and railways – requiring accountability for every dollar spent. I oppose the initiative to increase Bay Area bridge tolls by $3. The California Transportation Foundation awarded me Elected Official of the Year.

Public safety and fire protection remain my top priorities. Other focus areas that make me proud include Women’s Commission – working alongside area women to establish our first Commission for Women and Girls; domestic violence – authoring legislation to add instruction on early detection of domestic violence to school curriculums, rating 97 percent in votes benefiting children; prescription drugs – supporting new law requiring drug makers to give 90-day notice before raising prices; veterans – authoring laws to recognize veterans on drivers’ licenses, protect overseas military voting rights and college benefits, strongly opposing any plan to build tunnels to send water to Southern California.
