Half of the Brooklyn Park City Council will be new faces.
West District winner: Susan Pha
John Jordan vacated his West District seat when he moved out of the city earlier this year and Amy Hanson and Susan Pha both cleared the primary to be on the ballot to replace him. The council plans to appoint the winner on Thursday to fill the vacancy. Susan Pha won with 56 percent of the vote over Hanson to be the first minority on the Brookyn Park City Council.
Central district winner: Mark Mata
Longtime council member Mike Trepanier is not running for re-election in the Central District. Mark Mata and James Jackson both competed for the open seat. Former council member Mata won with 51 percent of the vote.
East district winner: Lisa Jacobson
In the East District, Lisa Jacobson and Reva Chamblis ran to replace Council member Peter Crema. Jacobson captured 56 of the vote.
Mayor Jeff Lunde (R) will be staying on the city council, as he lost his bid for Senate District 36 to incumbent John Hoffman (DFL). Lunde has two years remaining on his term.
