This podcast this week is a conversation with Jacob Frey, who is running for City Council minneapolis’s Ward 3, which covers a large part of downtown and Northeast Minneapolis along the Mississippi River. Jacob is an attorney and community activist who got his start in local politics through long-distance running, and moved to Minneapolis because he loved the Twin Cities’ marathon.
Jacob’s platform focuses on housing issues, how to make downtown fit for families, and increasing the appeal of walking near the Minneapolis riverfront.
Jacob and I sat down a little while back at the Wilde Roast Café on Saint Anthony Main, and we talked about the race, his key issues, and how Jane Jacobs inspired his approach to the city.
