About Ted Frey

Waunakee Schools Parent & Longtime Resident

My name is Ted Frey.  I am running for a seat on the Waunakee Community School Board representing the Town of Westport and Cities of Middleton and Madison in the April 6th election.  I’m proud to call the Waunakee community my home for the last 24 years.  When my wife Rebecca and I purchased a house in Westport we thought we might stay for five years.  We didn’t have any children but hoped to start a family.  

Having both grown up in the area (Sauk City), we knew the great reputation of Waunakee schools.  Sure, when I was in school and the Eagles battled the Warriors I may have had different thoughts … but, that was another time.  Now we have four incredible children, two of which have graduated and are continuing their education at UW Whitewater and UW Madison.  The others are attending Waunakee High School and Middle School.  Waunakee schools have contributed greatly to all of their success.  

I earned a degree in Mechanical Engineering from UW Madison and was an Engineering Manager at Techline here in Waunakee for 15 years. I currently provide engineering support for a company my brother started. He is one of my seven siblings. I’m the second youngest and am fortunate to have grown up in a family with strong values with faith and education being two of the most important. These taught my siblings and I many life lessons along the way that I am proud to carry forward in my family.
