Jacob Frey is an attorney and a community organizer.
He’s a resident of the Nicollet Island/East Bank Neighborhood and a member of the Minneapolis Capital Long Range Improvement Committee.
Frey is also known for organizing the Big Gay Race, mobilizing over 10,000 people and raising hundreds of thousands of dollars to fight the marriage amendment. Frey took the DFL endorsement from incumbent Diane Hofstede, who withdrew from the endorsement process. He stopped by KFAI to talk with Trisha Collopy. She noted that four city council incumbents did not get the DFL endorsement this time around, and she asked Jacob Frey why he thinks that happened.
