MADISON – The man who served as state senator in the First District for six months was named Thursday, January 3, by Governor-elect Tony Evers to head the Department of Workforce Development.
Caleb Frostman currently serves as the state senator for the First Senate District, which includes southern Brown County, northern Calumet County and a portion of northern Manitowoc County.
Frostman was elected in a special election last June, edging out Second District State Assemblyman Andre Jacque. Frostman had to run again in the November general election, but this time was beaten by Jacque.
Frostman previously served as executive director for the Door County Economic Development Corporation. Frostman was raised in Green Bay and served on the Bay Area Workforce Development Board, the Door County Visitor Bureau and the Sturgeon Bay Visitor Center. He currently serves on the board of Sunshine House, an organization that serves adults with disabilities, and the Advisory Council of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Door County.
