Councillor Linda Downey

I'm a lifelong resident of the Panania/Picnic Point area and teacher at a local high school. I am married to former long-serving MP, Alan Ashton, and have two daughters. 

I held the positions of Mayor and Councillor on the former Bankstown City Council and have always worked to ensure positive outcomes for the community, serving on numerous Council Committees.

My qualifications include a Bachelor of Economics, and Graduate Diplomas in Labour Relations and Education. I completed the Elected Members Certificate at UTS in 2014 and was awarded Life Membership of the Australian Labor Party in 2017.

I am honoured to currently hold the position of Deputy Mayor.
