Wilson Announces State Assembly Campaign Launch

SUISUN CITY – Lori Wilson has scheduled her campaign to kick off for a State Assembly seat on Wednesday at 4 p.m. at the Harbor Center on Driftwood Drive.

Wilson, the mayor of Suisun City, is seeking to replace Assembly member Jim Frazier, D-Fairfield, who announced his resignation effective year-end.

Frazier, who contacted Wilson to run for the job, is expected to attend the event.

It will be up to Governor Gavin Newsom to set the date for the special elections, with the possibility that it will be consolidated with the primary elections in June.

If that happens, voters in the current 11th Assembly District would vote on the candidate to fulfill Frazier’s term. This includes voters in Solano, Contra Costa and Sacramento counties.

In Solano County, on the same ballot, newly drawn 11th District voters would vote for their representative for the 2023-24 term, with the top two primary voters facing off in the November general election.

If the special election is held before June, current voters in the district will choose Frazier’s replacement, and then new voters in the district will vote in the June primary and November general election for the next term.

The California Citizens Redistricting Commission, after a weekend of shifting the boundaries of the Central Coast districts and parts of the Bay Area, placed Solano County in a single assembly district, calling it 11th district – the same number as the current Frazier district.

The committee is expected to finalize its vote on Dec. 27 on the new district maps.
