Ridgefield State Representative John Frey has been sworn in for a 10th term. Frey has been appointed as Senior Republican Whip. He is also a Ranking Member on the Transportation Bonding Sub-Committee, and a member of the Finance, Revenue, and Bonding; Banking; and Legislative Management committees. Frey says making badly needed improvement to the state’s infrastructure is made much more complicated by the ongoing state of fiscal crisis. He says having a seat at the table where transportation dollars are allocated is important – especially to Fairfield County.
