Assemblymember Frazier Opens District Office In Fairfield, Thursday, March 14, 2013

Tuesday, March 5, 2013

Fairfield, CA – Assemblymember Jim Frazier (D-Oakley) invites the public to join him on March 14th from 4 pm to 7 pm for the opening of his District Office at 1261 Travis Blvd., Suite 110, Fairfield, CA . This is the first Assembly district office in Fairfield since Retired Assemblyman Tom Hannigan left office in 1995.

Jim Frazier, a local small-business owner, was elected in November, 2012 to serve in the State Assembly representing the 11th Assembly District, which includes his hometown of Oakley, and the communities of Antioch, Brentwood, Discovery Bay, Pittsburg, Fairfield, Suisun City, Vacaville, Rio Vista and Isleton.  Prior to his election, Jim served as a City Council member and former Mayor of Oakley.

Assemblymember Frazier became involved in public service after a family tragedy. On December 16, 2000, his two daughters were in a head-on auto collision due to black ice on their way to Lake Tahoe. One daughter died and one was in critical condition.  Grief-stricken, the family learned that there had been 143 accidents and many fatalities on that stretch of Highway 50, Jim’s family succeeded in convincing Caltrans to widen the median and install a new pavement to prevent black ice on that part of the highway. This unfortunate tragedy sparked his interest in highway safety and transit problems.

Among his top priorities for his first term are: serving his constituents by assisting with interactions with government agencies, protecting the Delta; repairing the infrastructure of our roads and highways; limiting hikes in college tuition; maintaining funds for local public safety and encouraging job creation.
