Email

Get ready for a new-look Bemidji City Council.

Come January, three members of the seven-person council will be new faces.

In addition to Bemidji's new mayor, Dave Larson, there also will be two new councilors, Rita Albrecht and Jim Thompson.

Albrecht, a former city staffer, unseated current Ward 2 Councilor Jerry Downs in Tuesday's general election.

Thompson narrowly won election for the at-large councilor position over lifelong resident Linda Lemmer.
