Frey will serve a 4 year term on the council, which meets several times a year in Washington DC.
He lives in a restored 1753 house, once the home of a revolutionary war soldier, is a member of the State Capitol Preservation and Restoration Commission, a former trustee of the Ridgefield Historical Society and served as President of the Lounsbury House, formerly the home of the late Connecticut Governor Phineas C. Lounsbury. Frey is one of Connecticut’s representatives to the National Republican Committee and in 2007 was appointed by then President Bush to the Commission on White House Fellowships.
