Fraley was chosen by a search committee of the board to fill the vacant seat for District 5– southern Pike and northern Calhoun Counties.
Fraley lives in Hardin, Illinois with his wife Kari and their four children. Fraley is a 2001 graduate of Southern Illinois University of Carbondale. He is employed with Farm Credit Illinois in Jerseyville as a Regional Manager.

Outside of work, Fraley serves on the Calhoun Unit 40 school board, as well as a member of St. Francis of Assisi Parish and FFA Alumni Association.
