Supervisor Michael R. Frey
In November 1991, Michael Frey was elected as the first member of the Board of Supervisors to represent the newly created Sully District. The district was created after the 1990 census showed dramatic growth in western Fairfax County. The Board of Supervisors redrew the boundaries for magisterial districts and added one, the Sully District. He was re-elected in 1995, 1999, 2003, 2007 and again in 2011 .
Since being elected to the Board of Supervisors, Frey has represented Fairfax County on the Washington Metropolitan Council of Government's Transportation Planning Board and the Environmental Policy Committee. He has also served on the Inova Health Care Services Board. Frey is regarded by many as one of the most knowledgeable officials in Virginia on land use and development issues and has chaired the Board's Development Policy Committee since 1992. He has been a member of the Executive Committee of the Dulles Area Transportation Association (DATA) since 1992, and currently serves on the Rt. 28 Highway Transportantion Improvement District Commission.
Frey was also called upon by former Governor George Allen to serve the
people of Virginia, first as a member of the Dulles Area Regional
Economic Study Commission, and then in 1995 on the Virginia Baseball
Stadium Authority. Governor Gilmore then named him as Chairman of the
Stadium Authority in 1999. In 2003, Governor Warner reappointed him to
the Authority and he served as Vice-Chairman.
Frey, 58, has lived in Fairfax County for the last 37 years and has been a homeowner in the London Commons Community of Centreville for over 28years. A 1983 George Mason University graduate with a Bachelors Degree in Government and Politics, Frey was selected as one of the Outstanding Young Men in America that same year. He is also a graduate of Leadership Fairfax, the premier leadership development program in Northern Virginia.
Frey has been involved in a variety of community activities. He is a charter member of the Burke Rotary Club. For more than ten years, he coached youth basketball and baseball for both the Springfield Youth Club and the Southwest Youth Association. Issues affecting our youth remain one of Frey's top priorities, and he has been a strong supporter of youth athletics.
During his six terms in office Frey has traveled overseas as a representative of local government officials. He was part of official delegations of local and state representatives that visited Israel and Switzerland in 2000 and 2001. In 2004, Frey participated in a pilot program in Cambodia sponsored by the International Republican Institute. He worked with IRI to develop and present a program to several commune councils elected in the first-ever local elections in Cambodian history. He traveled to Turkey in October of 2012 with a local delegation, sponsored by the American-Turkish Friendship Association in Fairfax, to meet with local Turkish officials, citizens and students to converse about government and Fairfax County.
Michael Frey has been a strong voice on the Board of Supervisors since 2005 in support of Fairfax County bidding to host the World Police and Fire Games, and in 2009 traveled with Team Fairfax to Vancouver, British Columbia, where Fairfax County was subsequently awarded the honor of hosting the 2015 games.
