is a Republican member of the Texas State Senate. Since 1997, he has held the 24th District seat, which encompasses all or parts of the counties of Bandera, Bell, Blanco, Brown, Burnet, Callahan, Comanche, Coryell, Gillespie, Hamilton, Kerr, Lampasas, Llano, Mills, San Saba, Taylor, and Travis.〔
A native of Abilene, Texas, Fraser attended Angelo State University in San Angelo, Texas, and the University of Texas at Arlington. He formerly resided in Belton in Bell County.
A resident of Horseshoe Bay in Llano County west of the capital city of Austin, Fraser also served in the Texas House of Representatives from 1988 to 1993 for District 69, then based about Big Spring in Howard County. He was preceded and succeeded by Democrats Larry D. Shaw of Big Spring and John Hirschi of Wichita Falls, elected in 1992 in a reconfigured district.〔(【引用サイトリンク】title=Troy Fraser )〕
Effective January 2017, he will retire from the Senate. In his statement of departure, Fraser said: "For twenty-seven years, I have walked the halls of our magnificent Capitol building. I have marveled at its dome, gazed upon the Goddess of Liberty and dedicated myself to my constituents. To quote the late Bob Bullock, 'only death will end my love affair with Texas.' It's been a great ride."
Fraser said that he is most pleased of his legislation which now requires photo identification for voting in Texas, a measure which he said "ensures the integrity of the ballot box and protects our most sacred privilege."〔 He was Texas Senate President Pro Tempore in 2009.〔
