As expected, Republican Supervisor Mike Frey will not seek re-election for Sully District Supervisor on the Fairfax Board of Supervisors. Frey made his announcement on Monday night,[read_more]
“Regarding the upcoming elections in November, I will not be seeking reelection,” he said. “You reach a time where change is appropriate, and that time has come for me.”
Frey has been the only Supervisor representing the Sully district since it was established in 1992.
“I’ve worked for the county for 37 years. I started working for [former Board Chairman] Jack Herrity in June 1978 and was then [former Centreville District Supervisor] Elaine McConnell’s chief of staff for seven years before becoming the Sully District supervisor.”
Mike Frey is undecided about his future. He will remain in Centreville but has not yet decided if he will seek another job, volunteer at the animal shelter, or coach little league sports.
Brian Schoeneman, currently a member of the Fairfax Electoral Board, will run for the seat. Fortuitously, Schoeneman moved into the Sully district last week. Schoeneman is an attorney and a labor lobbyist. In 2011 he ran for the House of Delegates against David Bulova. It is believed Schoeneman will run as a Republican.

Much more to come on this race.
