Jim Frazier said he’s been working in Sacramento for a few years now, which will give him a leg up if elected to the 11th Assembly District.

Frazier, a member of the Oakley City Council and former mayor, said he has worked on several bills in Sacramento for his city and made connections at the state and federal level throughout the years. He said that will help him if elected.

“I’ve been up in Sacramento for the last two years and built relationships with committee members and others,” Frazier said. “I’m not going up there as a newbie, per se. All those that have endorsed me will help me with the learning curve.”

Frazier is the Democratic candidate and will face off against Suisun City’s Mike Hudson, a Republican, in the Nov. 6 election to represent residents in the new Assembly district. Redistricting left no incumbent for the district that includes most of Solano County, parts of Contra Costa County and a small piece of Sacramento County. Frazier finished second with 28 percent of the vote in the spring primary while Hudson pulled in 31 percent in a crowded field.

“We’re meeting some great people. It’s been a blast in Solano. The way this district was drawn, we weren’t well-known in that area,” Frazier said. “It’s a fantastic opportunity for a fresh face to come in and start with a new outlook.”

Frazier said a large portion of his political career has been spent creating jobs, helping families and working on transportation issues.

“My ability to create jobs is what I’ve been conveying to them. I’ve got the relationships to make things happen,” he said. “I really do put people before politics.”

Frazier said if elected he would like to see every committee and service looked at to see what is working and what is not.

    Not interesting at all, Kayes. There were 3 democrats running therefore they all split votes. Otherwise, Hudson would not have been first. He was the only candidate in his party to run.
