Frazier secures Assembly Transportation and Water, Parks and Wildlife Committee assignments
Antioch’s new representative in Sacramento has secured positions on two key California State Assembly committees that will benefit the community.
Assembly Speaker John Pérez assigned Assemblyman Jim Frazier to three standing committees for the 2013-2014 legislative session: Insurance Committee, Transportation Committee and Water, Parks and Wildlife Committee. As previously announced by Pérez, Frazier will also serve as Chair of the Assembly Accountability and Administrative Review Committee.
In addition, Frazier announced the selection of his Sacramento Chief of Staff, Debra Gravert, as well as his District Director, Jennifer Barton.
Gravert has over 25 years of experience working in the State Capitol and brings vast expertise to the position. She formerly served as Chief of Staff to Assemblymember Jared Huffman (D-San Rafael) and Assemblymember Fran Pavley (D-Agoura Hills). Gravert will manage all staff and operations for Frazier’s District and Capitol offices and serve as his principal staff advisor on legislative issues.
As District Director, Jennifer will direct the staff in the two local offices of Assemblyman Frazier, overseeing District operations such as constituent services, community outreach, town hall meetings and events. Barton is a seasoned District Director having served as the District Director for former Assemblywoman Helen Thomson, Senator Lois Wolk, and Congresswoman Ellen Tauscher.
In addition to Gravert and Barton, the Frazier team also includes Lawrence Cooper, Legislative Director; Tisha Simpson, Scheduler; Zachary Leary, Legislative Assistant; and Brandon King, Field Representative.
“I am excited and honored to serve the residents and communities in the 11th Assembly District,” said Frazier. “Having talented professionals on my team will help me to do just that.”
Assemblymember Frazier’s Sacramento office is located at:
State Capitol, Room 3091
Sacramento, CA 95814
A Contra Costa County District office will open as soon as office space is found.
