Nevin M. Frey is running for a two-year term on the board of Mahoning Township supervisors in Tuesday’s General Election.
Frey, 54, is a lifelong resident of the township and graduate of Lehighton Area High School.
He has worked in Mahoning Township most of his adult life. A township road crew employee for nearly 11 years, he most recently serves as the roadmaster of the road crew. Before that, he farmed with his father, the late Howard Frey at the former Frey Farms in New Mahoning, raising Christmas trees and produce.
Frey remains dedicated to his roots of agriculture and has a sprawling lush backyard garden and ability to supply his family with fresh homegrown food. He is married to Denise (Breidegam) Frey. Together, they care for their pets Lacey Jane, an Australian shepherd, and Poncho, a house cat. The couple also enjoys preserving fruits and vegetables from their garden with their family.
If elected to the board of supervisors, Frey said he will continue to help residents by addressing concerns about local issues, including road conditions and other township services provided to residents. He is also an advocate of supporting local businesses.
