Emily Lutz elected as Liberal candidate for Kings West

Emily Lutz has been elected as the candidate for Kings West and will represent the Nova Scotia Liberal Party in the next provincial election. Due to COVID-19, the nomination meeting was conducted virtually, with the vote taking place entirely online and over the phone. 

Emily was born into a sixth generation family apple farm in Rockland where she and her husband now raise their three children. She has been twice elected to Kings County Council, both times being selected Deputy Mayor. Emily was also elected as President of the Nova Scotia Federation of Municipalities where she works to build a strong relationship between municipal and provincial governments.

“I am so grateful for the faith the Liberals of Kings West have placed in me to be their candidate. We have a clear direction, and incredible momentum going into the next election,” says Lutz. “I’m excited to continue working hard for our community in this new role.”

Emily has been a strong advocate for the community, serving on the Grand View Manor board and the Doctor Recruitment and Resident Retention Committee, helping residents of Kings County access valuable medical services. She has been a strong voice for young people and women in government and is regularly asked to speak about her experiences. Emily’s experience on her family farm has allowed her to be a champion for rural life and agriculture in Nova Scotia.

“I am so pleased that Emily has joined our team,” says Premier Rankin. “The people of Kings West will be well-served by her passion and commitment to the community.”
