Councillor Alex Givney

Alex was elected as the Councillor for the Wynnum Manly Ward in March 2024 as part of Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner’s team. As a longstanding resident in the Wynnum Manly area, Alex strives to ensure she sets an example for her children that hard work and forming genuine relationships are the keys to living a happy and fulfilling life.

Educated at Moreton Bay College during her senior school years, Alex developed a passion for teaching and went on to earn a degree from Queensland University of Technology. While studying, she remained committed to teaching within the Bayside.

Despite the demands of full-time study, Alex and her Wynnum-born husband ventured into homeownership at the age of 21, in Manly West while juggling three part-time jobs. Over a decade of dedicated service in primary education revealed her innate talent for fostering connections. This proficiency led her to transition into a role centred on stakeholder engagement within her school community, fostering collaboration with local businesses, alumni, and parent bodies.

Alex has taken an active role in managing her son's football team at the Wynnum Vikings and contributed her time to the committee of Wynnum General Gordon Kindergarten. Engaged in service organisations such as the Lions Club of Moreton Bay and the Rotary Club of Wynnum Manly, her dedication to community involvement has remained steadfast over the years.

Deeply passionate about the Bayside lifestyle, Alex is committed to working with the community to develop and deliver a comprehensive and balanced plan for its future. Her academic background includes a Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood) and a Diploma in Community Services (Children’s Services). Currently, she serves on both the Community and the Arts Committee and the Environment, Parks, and Sustainability Committee
