Raymond Joseph "Ray" Perrault (February 6, 1929 - November 24, 2008) was an American Nationalist politician who served as a U.S. Congressman for Pacifica's 1st Congressional district from 1967 until 1979, when he retired to run for Governor. He lost the gubernatorial race to former Sahalee Mayor David Barrett, and in 1980 returned to run for his old seat, winning by a narrow margin. He served in a slightly redrawn district until 1988, when he abruptly resigned to run for the Senate seat being vacated by longtime Senator Jack Davis. Regarded the favorite for the Nationalist nomination, he was stunned in the primary by State Senator Rita Johnston. Perrault was later appointed Secretary of Transportation in the cabinet of Governor Mike Harcourt, a position in which he served from December 1988 until October 1992. In 1993, he became Director of Fundraising for the Pacifica National Party, helping state party chairwoman Grace McCarthy lead the Nationalists to capturing three Congressional seats, a Senate seat, both houses of the state legislature and the positions of Attorney General and State Treasurer, and running a gubernatorial race behind businessman and State Senate Minority Leader Clifford J. Serwa that went to a recount.

Perrault retired after the 1994 victories and passed away in November of 2008.
