Senator Shilling Introduced Senator Frostman
“I am excited and pleased to have this opportunity today to formally introduce our new member today. Senator Caleb Frostman is serving in the State Senate representing the 1st Senate District. Senator Frostman serves Door and Kewaunee Counties as well as parts of Manitowoc, Brown, Calumet and Outagamie counties.
Since being elected in the June 2018 Special Election, Senator Frostman has been hard at work championing economic development, environmental conservation and preserving our great outdoor sporting heritage. Since he was elected in June, if Senator Frostman wasn’t attending community events or working on behalf of his constituents, he could be found fishing or hunting.
Senator Frostman was raised in Green Bay and currently lives in Sturgeon Bay. He is the former Executive Director of the Door County Economic Development Corporation, which under his leadership was a model economic development organization for the rest of the state.
Every resident deserves to be represented, and Senator Frostman has served with integrity and professionalism. Despite claims that we didn’t need this special election because legislation wouldn’t be coming in… here we are here today.
The people of the 1st Senate District deserved representation. I couldn’t be more proud to have Senator Frostman with us today.”
