  Emily Lutz was elected on October 15, 2016, to represent District 7, which represents the communities of Windermere, Rockland, South Berwick, Berwick West, East Berwick, South Waterville, South Cambridge, Tupper Lake, Prospect, Casey’s Corner, North Alton, South Alton, Forest Home, Blue Mountain, Murphy’s Lake, Highbury, Canaan, and parts of Aylesford Lake and White Rock.

Council elected her as Deputy Mayor on November 1, 2016.

Emily grew up on an apple farm in Rockland as the oldest of four siblings. She attended Central Kings Rural High, and upon graduating completed an undergraduate degree from Saint Thomas University in Fredericton with a double major in Political Science and “Great Ideas” (an interdisciplinary program encompassing Political Science, Sociology, and Philosophy), with minors focusing on Human Rights and Spanish. Emily was involved with Model United Nations and travelled to Harvard several times to compete nationally, and once to Singapore to compete internationally at World Model UN. Upon completion of her degree, she was accepted into the Nova Scotia Municipal Internship Program, where she worked for a year in Cumberland County. She spent considerable time in the departments of Planning and Public Works, Administration, Research and Policy, Finance, and Solid Waste. She was integral to the implementation of the Pugwash and Area Master Plan, and participated on the strategic planning committees for Climate Change and Citizen Engagement and Public Relations. She completed her internship in 2012 and began her Master’s at Acadia University in Social and Political Thought, with a focus on municipal governance and political spaces, which she remains very interested in today.

Emily and her husband Cassian Ferlatte live on a farm in Rockland with their one year old son Everett. Her interest in Council was sparked from her desire to have thoughtful policy in the areas of citizen engagement, environmental stewardship, and agriculture. As a long-time resident, she wants to keep Kings County a beautiful and healthy place to live, while engaging the wider community in the decision-making process.
