Frostman Will Put Economic Development Experience to Work for 1st Senate District
Door County, WI – Door County Economic Development Corporation Executive Director Caleb Frostman will run for Wisconsin’s 1st Senate District. The 1st District is currently unrepresented and has been at the center of a special election lawsuit, following Sen. Frank Lasee resignation, who left to join Gov. Walker’s administration at the end of last year.
“I’m running to fight for better investments in people, our businesses, and our lands,” said Frostman. “It is time for our state to prioritize public education, repair our broken infrastructure, protect our public lands, and advance policies that help people succeed, like access to affordable healthcare and childcare. It’s obvious that our current policies are not working and are failing regular Wisconsinites.”
Frostman worked in commercial real estate finance for nearly a decade prior to joining the Door County Economic Development Corporation. A product of Wisconsin’s public schools and universities, he poured concrete at his family’s construction company in the summers while attending school.
In the State Senate, Frostman will focus on providing affordable healthcare and childcare to Wisconsin workers, investing in our public schools and technical colleges, and protecting our outdoor sporting heritage.
“I know I am fortunate to call northeast Wisconsin home. Having grown up here, working here, and hunting and fishing here my entire life, there’s no place I’d rather be,” said Frostman. “I’ll work tirelessly to protect the things that make our corner of Wisconsin great, while bringing more and smarter investments to our region.”
