On Tuesday, October 15th, Assemblyman Jim Frazier will be hosting his first “Champion of the Delta” fundraiser, which like my Lobster Feed, I am hoping will become a yearly event. Funds raised by your contributions will assist with my re-election effort and allow me to fund a new task force I am forming to work on protecting the Delta, our most precious resource.
