Ryan L. Frazier (born September 8, 1977) is a United States public figure who is the managing director of Frazier Global Strategies, a small consulting firm. He is a former at-large member of the Aurora City Council and was the 2010 Republican candidate for United States House of Representatives Colorado's 7th congressional district. He was first elected as a councilman in 2003 and has served two terms.[2]

Small Business[edit]

Frazier leads his own small strategic consulting and professional services business, Frazier Global Strategies.[3] He also contributes as an NBC-affiliate 9News 'Political Expert', a regular on FOX Business' ‘The Willis Report’ All-Star Panel, and FOX News Channel ‘Hannity’s’ Great American Panel.[4]

Military service[edit]

Frazier served in the U.S. Navy, where he was assigned to the National Security Agency. He completed training at the Cryptologic School in Pensacola, Florida.[5][6]

Community Service[edit]

He co-founded and currently serves as board president of High Point Academy, a pre-K through 8th grade public charter school, serving over 800 students.[7] Frazier also is a member of the Colorado Boxing Commission since June 2013 [8]

Aurora City Council[edit]

First elected to the non-partisan Aurora City Council in 2003 at the age of 26, Frazier was re-elected in 2007. During his tenure on the council, Frazier worked on the city budget, supported a public/private life-sciences city on the former Fitzsimmons Army Medical base, and led the adoption of Cop-Link, a system to connect law enforcement agencies to critical information, which has since gone into use across Colorado. Frazier also promoted "boundless playgrounds" for disabled children.[9]

He has a reputation of being one of the most skilled orators in the Colorado GOP.[10]

Political campaigns[edit]

In April 2009, Frazier launched a preliminary campaign to run for the U.S. Senate seat held by Michael Bennet. Upon failing to raise sufficient funds to continue and not interested in a highly divisive party primary, Frazier ended his bid for the Senate and entered the race to challenge Ed Perlmutter, who has represented Colorado's 7th congressional district since 2007.[10] Frazier lost to Perlmutter 53.1% to 42.1%.[11][12] Libertarian Buck Bailey was also a candidate for the 7th Congressional District in 2010.

On September 5, 2012, the Romney for President campaign announced Frazier as a member of Governor Romney's Black Leadership Council.[13]

Personal life[edit]

Frazier has three children.[14]
