Councilman Knudsen Headshot

Brian Knudsen was elected to represent Ward 1 in June 2019, enabling him to continue to pursue his passion of public service. Since moving to Las Vegas in 2005, Councilman Knudsen has built programs and services for people and populations in Las Vegas and continues to serve the community as a member of the City Council.

For nearly a decade, he worked in the city of Las Vegas on initiatives that shaped the downtown core, redefined the educational landscape and rethought how city services are provided to Las Vegas residents.

Councilman Knudsen has worked alongside nonprofit partners, community leaders and elected officials to expand after-school meal programs for children, and helped launch a city- and community-led initiative to improve education in our downtown core.

Councilman Knudsen has more than 15 years of experience in city and state governments as well as time spent as the chief executive officer of a large nonprofit organization and as the owner of a small business. His experience covers multiple functions of government and nonprofit organizations and has focused on creating efficiencies, strategic planning and policy development.

He is a founding member of Downtown Achieves, which became the city of Las Vegas’ inspiration for creating the Department of Youth Development and Social Innovation. In addition, he is a founding member of Nevada’s Big Give, a one-day, online giving event that has raised nearly three million dollars for Nevada charities. He also has served as vice chair of the Downtown Las Vegas Alliance, vice president of the McNeil Neighborhood Association and as a member of the Adoption Exchange Board.

Councilman Knudsen has a Bachelor’s of Science degree from the University of Utah in health education and mass communications. He also has a Masters of Public Administration degree from the University of Southern California.

Brian is happily married and he and his husband have adopted two children. Councilman Knudsen believes that his children, and all Las Vegans, deserve leadership committed to making Las Vegas an even better place to live, work and play. He plans to continue to build a community that ensures equal opportunity, has great schools, provides strong public safety, preserves our neighborhoods and strives to be world class in all we do.
