Frazier outraises Hudson in Assembly race

By From page A3 | October 09, 2012

FAIRFIELD — State Assembly candidate Jim Frazier raised nearly $200,000 during the most recent filing period, dwarfing the $17,000 and change that his opponent Mike Hudson received.

The filing date for the most recent round of financial statements was Friday. Numbers released this weekend by the Secretary of State’s office showed the large gap in contributions for the 11th Assembly District received between July 1 and Sept. 30.

Frazier, a Democrat out of Oakley, brought in $199,530, relying on large corporations and unions from around the state. That brought his total up to $415,689 including money raised during the primary.

Hudson, a Suisun City Republican, collected a majority of his money through individual local donors and posted a total of $17,802 for the last period, bringing him to a total $86,989 during the campaign.

Several donations of $7,800 came in for Frazier, including the California State Council of Laborers PAC of Sacramento; California Teachers Association for Better Citizenship of Burlingame; American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employee Council of Sacramento; the California Real Estate PAC of Los Angeles; Northern California Carpenters Regional Council of Oakland; and IBEW, Local 302 of Martinez.

Hudson’s biggest donation came from Charles Munger of Palo Alto for $3,900. He received $1,000 donations from Norman Reece of Vallejo as well as the Modified Motorcycle Association of Pittsburg.

    Huh...its no wonder then, why I haven't heard from Mr. Frazier. He was invited for a Q and Q session by our group American Heritage Studies here in Fairfield. Why bother reaching out to your constituents when you are too busy collecting money from people in high places. Ya know Jim, your opponent at least had the testicular fortitude to come down and answer some tough fair questions in front of our group. You were invited Jim, but chose not to show. I hope people read this and see you for who you are: a political hooker turning tricks.
