How A Politician Changed His Life To Be a Lead Dad

Interview with Michael Frerichs / Illinois Treasurer, Father of Three

Hosted by Paul Sullivan

Michael Frerichs was elected state treasurer in 2014 and has been reelected twice. For all that time he lived in a farming town in southern Illinois where he grew up. When he met his second wife, she was working for Kellogg in Chicago. They commuted, so she could be close to work and he could be with his daughter from his first marriage. Then they had twins. And the choice was: ask her to move to his town or relocate to Chicago so she could continue on the executive path. Listen to what they did and how it impacted their careers – for the better.
