Jim Fraser

Part-Time Professor in Political Science

I'm excited to be teaching US Government in the Spring Semester 2019 at Valencia College. There is perhaps no time in our nation's recent history where it's been more important for all of us to understand our US political system and to understand how each of us can be engaged and make a difference.

I moved to the Orlando area last November after spending over 20 years in Washington, DC. I have a lot of experience in politics, working in corporate government relations with all levels of our government. I'm also a retired Navy pilot and I spent the last four years of my military career at the Pentagon. When I'm not teaching at Valencia College, I have my own government relations consulting firm.

Here are some interesting facts about me:

Favorite Team: Washington Capitals

Favorite Orlando Team: Orlando Solar Bears

Favorite Sport: Triathlon (entered in Ironman Florida in November 2019)

Favorite Disney Park: Epcot Center

Favorite Florida School: Valencia College (of course)
