DAI Le is one of the new faces that will form Fairfield Council in coming weeks.
She clinched a spot representing Cabravale Ward at the recent local government elections.
The former state Liberal candidate for Cabramatta and journalist ran as an independent.
This followed the Liberal Party's decision not to endorse any Liberal candidates.
Ms Le received 22.58 per cent of the vote and could not be contacted.
But she said in her campaign biography that Cabravale needed a strong voice.
"Cabravale's richness and vibrancy is being neglected," she said. "Parking, roads, traffic congestion, cleanliness and a long-term plan for the area's growth have not been on council's priority list."
Dai Le said her main focus would be on keeping the council honest and accountable to ratepayers, as well as improving facilities in her ward.
"I'll also be cutting wasteful spending to ensure ratepayers get value for their money, improving services such as council clean-ups, community safety, transport and education and building infrastructure that will help revitalise the local economy," she said.
