Professional/Occupational

2003 Cary Chamber of Commerce Small Business Community Service Award Winner;

 

A native of Fullerton, California, where he lived for 18 years, Don Frantz settled in Cary in 1992 after a brief stay in South Hill, Virginia. For Don, Cary offered the perfect blend of the conveniences he enjoyed in a Southern California city with the close proximity of nature he loved in the Virginia countryside. 

It’s in Cary that Don met and married his lovely wife, Lisa, and Cary is where they decided to raise their six children as well as start their small business – Frantz Automotive. Like so many in this community, for Don, family is the center of his life in Cary.

As a downtown resident, businessman, and overall booster, Don has served two terms as president of the Heart of Cary Association. His small business background gives him firsthand experience with many of the challenges facing business today as well as the role good customer service plays in any organization’s success. A member of the National Federation of Independent Business owners and Cary Chamber of Commerce, Don works hard at supporting both Cary’s business community and that of our region.

Don’s Town government service includes appointments to the Planning & Zoning Board as well as the Citizen Budget Review Commission. He was elected as the Town Council District B representative in 2007 and has a keen interest in being the voice of “old Cary.”

Don’s priorities include maintaining Cary’s small-town charm and feel as our community continues to grow, protecting our environment, providing good jobs through effective economic development initiatives, and continuing to build strong relationships with governments throughout the region. 

For Don, government must be focused on working for and respecting the citizens it serves.
