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, and again in 2003 .
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. Frey is presently the county's representative to the Council of Government's Development Policy Committee. He 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 served three years on the Inova Health Care Services Board and the COG Committee on Noise at National and Dulles Airports.
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 has served as Vice-Chairman since then.
Frey, 51, has lived in Fairfax County for the last 29 years and has been a homeowner in the London Commons Community of Centreville for the last 23 years. 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 four 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
