Sid Sidebottom MP

‌ for a fair go in Braddon

MEDIA RELEASE 23 September 2010

FAREWELL MIKE DOWNIE The North-West Coast has lost a real community fighter, leader, colleague and friend in the passing of Mike Downie. I had the privilege of working with Mike Downie firstly as a Central Coast Councillor and later as the Federal Member, on a whole host of issues. He always put the welfare of his community and the North-West at the heart of his decision making even when this went against commonly held views to the contrary. More often than not Mike was right. Mike loved his family, Council and his community dearly and when I visited him last week he spent most of the time discussing local issues along with his mighty Magpies. I join with the Coast in extending sincerest sympathies to his lovely wife Kath and his loving children.
