For our third episode of our new "Inside City Hall" podcast series, we checked in with new City Council Member Jacob Frey (Ward 3).

Frey is one of seven new City Council members this year. He's in his second week on the job. We talked about the latest legal challenge to the Vikings stadium, the proposed Nicollet Mall redesign, plans for a new Downtown East park and his goals for the Third Ward.

Frey defeated incumbent Diane Hofstede by a wide margin on Election Day in November. He raised more than any other candidate running for City Council. The new Third Ward includes neighborhoods downtown and east of the river.
