Jacob Frey is the 48th Mayor of Minneapolis, a former Minneapolis City Council Member, a civil rights attorney, an advocate for social justice, and a proud resident of the greatest city in America. While practicing employment and civil rights law at Faegre and Benson (now Faegre Baker Daniels) and later Halunen Law, he knew he wanted to apply the same work ethic that made him a successful runner to efforts that increased equity, brought people together, and made a real difference in the lives of fellow Minnesotans. He became an active community organizer. In 2012, the City of Minneapolis honored him with its inaugural Martin Luther King, Jr. Award for his civil rights work. In 2013, he successfully ran for City Council in Minneapolis' 3rd Ward, with a platform that championed constituent services, increasing residential growth, growing the number and variety of small and local businesses, and getting affordable housing fully funded.He is proud to have delivered on his campaign promises over the past four years. Under his leadership, the 3rd Ward has accounted for more than 65 percent of all growth in Minneapolis, affordable housing is funded at record levels, we have a new community-based school that is winning awards, we've seen record numbers of small business openings, and we've implemented substantial green space improvements that add value to public spaces.
