Frey and Palmisano join City Council Following the 2013 city election, the Minnesota Daily is running a series profiling new City Council members. Beginning in January, Jacob Frey and Linea Palmisano will represent City Council wards 3 and 13, respectively.
Linea Palmisano and Jacob Frey
Attorney Jacob Frey defeated two-term incumbent Diane Hofstede to represent Ward 3, an area that covers parts of the University of Minnesota and its surrounding neighborhoods.
Originally from northern Virginia, Frey moved to Minneapolis in 2009 after graduating from the Villanova University School of Law.
Frey raised more than $100,000 during his campaign, also defeating Green Party candidate Kristina Gronquist and Libertarian candidate Michael Katch.

But she'll face competition as Jacob Frey, a young attorney who ran for the state Senate in 2011, looks to match that energy and take her 3rd Ward seat.
Four city councilmembers have endorsed Frey, while three others have backed Hofstede.
Frey was on the University of Minnesota campus last week, meeting supporters at fraternities, Blarney Pub and Grill and in the North Loop for a campaign event.
Frey said even he's surprised at how much support his campaign has attracted so far.
"We've got some very intense and excited supporters," he said, "and I hope to keep it that way."
"I think those are characteristics of Jacob's that will serve him pretty well being an engaged and effective councilmember."
"Jacob offers the type of fresh, activist-oriented leadership residents of the 3rd Ward are looking for," he said.
Frey said endorsements are nice, but gaining delegates and votes is what he's focused on.
"Our campaign is not a trickle-down political approach," he said.
Frey has held several campaign events near campus and said he wants student voices heard in city government.
"Students are part of the community," he said. "... to exclude them from the process is to devalue the potential for them to settle here."
Frey said he's been making an effort to meet all the students who support him, and some have taken notice.
Frey said his last meet-and-greet was focused on keeping young people in Minneapolis, which he says is crucial to its future.
"You want to retain intelligent, forward-thinking people in the community," he said, "and it'd be stupid to exclude them."

With more than 10 months until next year's Minneapolis City Council election, things are already heating up between Ward 3 Councilwoman Diane Hofstede, who represents the area including the University of Minnesota, and her challenger, attorney Jacob Frey.
Last week, four of Hofstede's colleagues on the City Council announced that they would support Frey for her seat. The eight-year council veteran countered with her own list of endorsements including three other council members.
At first, Frey's endorsements seemed like a renunciation of Hofstede.
It appears, though, that these endorsements all relate to one issue: support for a new Vikings stadium. Supporters of a new stadium all fall on Hofstede's side, while opponents have lined up behind Frey.
While the Vikings stadium debate was the most contentious issue at the council over the past year, this race is about more than this single issue. On their websites, both candidates say they want to improve the livability of the ward, create living-wage jobs and focus on sustainable development. Frey proposes making downtown a more "viable option for families," and Hofstede plans to champion the ward's artistic community.
