Sacramento, CA – California State Assemblyman Jim Frazier (D-Fairfield) announced his resignation from the California State Assembly, District 11, effective December 31, 2021.

“This is the best job that I have ever had,” shared Assemblyman Frazier, ”I have enjoyed serving the State of California and the 11th Assembly District and greatly appreciate the confidence that my constituents have shown me over the last nine years. I am proud of the many successes that we have achieved together. My future plans are to put to use my passion and experience in the transportation sector, explore new career opportunities and spend additional time with family and friends.”

Frazier is a former small-business owner who was elected to the State Assembly in 2012. He has since enjoyed several elections won by a large majority.

In 2008, after serving on the city’s Planning Commission and as a Commissioner on the Contra Costa Transportation Authority’s Citizen Advisory Committee, Frazier was elected to the Oakley City Council. He then served as Mayor of Oakley from 2011-2012.

The 11th District encompasses portions of Solano, Contra Costa and Sacramento counties and includes the following cities, towns, and areas: Antioch, Bethel Island, Birds Landing, Brentwood, Byron, Collinsville, Discovery Bay, Fairfield, Isleton, Knightsen, Locke, Oakley, Pittsburg (partial), Rio Vista, Suisun City, Travis Air Force Base, Vacaville and Walnut Grove.  It is unclear who will put their name in the hat to fill the seat, however Brentwood City Councilwoman, Karen Rarey, is widely considered the favorite.
