SACRAMENTO – Assemblymember Jim Frazier (D-Discovery Bay), whose district encompasses a large portion of the Delta, issued the following statement today after Gov. Gavin Newsom said in his State of the State address he does not support the twin tunnels project.

“I’m grateful Governor Newsom has been willing to listen to local stakeholders in the battle for the future of the Delta. His unequivocal denunciation of the twin tunnels project is a step in the right direction. I look forward to working with the governor to convince him there are alternative water delivery solutions that are economical and can be delivered in a timely manner, nullifying the need for even a single tunnel.”

Assemblymember Frazier represents the 11th Assembly District, which includes the communities of Antioch, Bethel Island, Birds Landing, Brentwood, Byron, Collinsville, Discovery Bay, Fairfield, Isleton, Knightsen, Locke, Oakley, Pittsburg (partial), Rio Vista, Suisun City, Travis AFB, Vacaville and Walnut Grove.

  1. A republican voting for Newsom two things I wanted him to do. Get rid of high speed rail and the twin tunnels. Looks like there is hope. Thank you governor.

  2. Still waiting on hearing Jim’s Press release on Gavin’s decision to halt the High Speed Rail Project. It looked as though they had words after the speech, and most certainly pointed fingers at one another, as Frazier didnt get an advanced copy of the State of the State Address prior to the speech. With him getting close to terming out, I’m sure he was counting on the HSR Project continuing for his next paycheck. But I digress….
