Hi, I'm Emily Dunsworth!

I'm running for New Brighton City Council.
Scroll down to find out more about me and why I am running!

About me

My name is Emily Dunsworth and I am asking for your vote for New Brighton City Council. I have been a New Brighton resident since 2012, when my partner, Anthony, who is currently in Florida helping with hurricane relief, and our then-newborn son bought a home near Freedom Park. Though we moved here 5 years ago, I am not new to the area. I am a proud graduate of the Mounds View school district. My father was a local family practice doctor for 30 years and my mother worked at a local clinic for over 25 years. My 97-year old grandmother also lives in New Brighton. I was the last person to lock the doors of the New Brighton courthouse when it was located where the new license bureau will be housed.

Career and Education

I received my BA from Gustavus Adolphus College, MA from the University of St. Thomas, and JD from New England Law School of Law in Boston. I am a licensed attorney in Minnesota and currently serve as the Dean of Admissions for Mitchell Hamline School of Law in St. Paul.

Goals and Achievements

I am a founding member of the New Brighton Farmers Market. It has been a privilege to see the energy and momentum the farmers market has created around building an even stronger community. I also serve on the Economic Development Commission, where I am able to take an active role in moving New Brighton forward in a positive direction. My family chose New Brighton for the same reasons you did – exceptional schools, safe neighborhoods, amazing parks and trails, and a strong sense of community. Ensuring that new and long-standing residents, our children and seniors, continue to benefit from our incredible community is my goal and commitment.
