California Counties Recognize Assemblyman Jim Frazier for Work to Improve Transportation

December 16, 2017 19:00 pm · 16 comments

The California State Association of Counties (CSAC) has chosen Assemblymember Jim Frazier, D-Discovery Bay, to receive its Distinguished Service Award for 2017.

“As chair of the Assembly Transportation Committee, Assemblymember Frazier led the charge in the Assembly to fix California’s local roads, state highways and transit systems,” said Alameda County Supervisor Keith Carson, immediate past president of CSAC. “His efforts in the Legislature, the media and in many other settings eventually lead to the passage of SB 1 and ACA 5 in April of this year. He has been an earnest and steadfast partner and helped ensure that local governments and local taxpayers also see the benefits from this landmark legislation.”

“CSAC represents the leadership of the 58 counties that make up the most diverse, successful and forward-thinking state in the nation,” Frazier said. “It is humbling to be singled out by them for this recognition. I look forward to a lasting partnership with CSAC as we continue to work together on behalf our constituents.”

CSAC is comprised of county supervisors and staff from all the state’s counties, and represents county governments before the Legislature, state administrative agencies and the federal government. CSAC places a strong emphasis on educating the public about the value and need for county programs and services.

Typical. They give each other awards for nothing.

Really? It would be difficult to find a worse example of effective transportation than Discovery Bay. There’s more to transportation than filling potholes. How about building new suburbs in places with adequate highway or public transit access? Highway 4 and Marsh Creek road don’t count. How long would a bus/BART trip take to Oakland or San Francisco? I tried to look it up but the Tri-Delta website wasn’t very helpful. And along that vein have you heard on the radio the ads for the River Islands developments near Lathrop? More cars heading to Highway 4 and/or 580. Madness.

I agree: “what a load”…. and we’re not talking about a load of asphalt here.

Old Otis December 16, 2017 at 8:57 PM

What roads were fixed again?

Pac Islander December 16, 2017 at 9:26 PM

Isn’t that his job? Why are we giving people awards for doing little more than showing up to work?

Deplorable December 17, 2017 at 9:53 AM

If you don’t heap praise on these snowflakes they won’t show up at all.

@pac islander …..

I’ll bet it’s like so many other awards – nothing more than a participation trophy that they can pat each others’ back about.

Fix the roads? What roads are they referring to? Roads in Canada? In Austrailia? In Greenland? Here in the Bay Area the roads and the traffic are a disaster, as we all know.

The story is just one more of the countless examples of incompetent incapable bloated and conceited government officials.

Hysterical that the same people who whine about taxes, then whine about every road not being fixed…

CSS December 17, 2017 at 11:44 AM

It’d be different if the tax money was spent responsibly. Politicians are self serving individuals.

Pac Islander December 17, 2017 at 1:03 PM

I only complain about the taxes and the roads, because i keep seeing taxes being implemented but the roads are never fixed. The money gets redirected to pay for things and services for those that re not bettering society.
If every dollar that California collects under the guise of infrastructure repair, we would have a cash surplus as well as roads that were flawless.

Sadly we have neither the surplus nor the flawless roads, but we do have an ever growing hand out program… Increases year by year…

Another Democrat given a participation trophy.


Chicken Little December 17, 2017 at 1:12 PM

I still recognize him for trying to steal millions of dollars from EBRPD to fund fire services in East County because the people who live out there refuse to pay for it themselves. Yeah, what a stand-up guy.

They love giving each other praise.
