Your Inner West Independent

Pauline Lockie is your progressive independent Councillor for the Stanmore ward of Inner West Council. She is dedicated to making sure our Inner West remains the best place in Sydney to live, work and play.

Meet Pauline Lockie

Pauline Lockie with Mike Baird, March 2016

As a local activist, founding member of the WestCONnex Action Group and independent Councillor at Inner West Council, Pauline has been a tireless fighter for our community.

Her work has played a key role in making WestConnex as controversial as it deserves to be, and made rising discontent with the project a key factor behind Premier Mike Baird’s sudden resignation in 2017.

Due to the wide-ranging impact WestConnex is having on the Inner West, Pauline’s advocacy expanded to include issues such as public transport, sustainable cities, development, the right to protest, democratic planning, and more.

In 2016, Pauline’s advocacy for our community was recognised when she was named the Newtown electorate’s Local Woman of the Year.

Pauline is passionate about liveable cities, local democracy, equality and sustainable development. She has proven herself to be someone who is fearless about speaking truth to power, standing up to the government to protect the long-term future of our community, and supporting residents across the Inner West.
