Three File For Downey Council District as Mario Guerra Terms Out

By Brian Hews

Three hopefuls have filed papers with the city clerk’s office seeking election to the Downey City Council.

 Robert Kiefer, who announced earlier, educator Sean Ashton, and physician Shahira A-Malek.

 Friday was the last day to file for the November election.

The three are seeking to replace Councilman Mario Guerra, who will be termed out of the District 2 seat at the end of this year.

 Kiefer, who is endorsed by Guerra, owns a printing business and is chairman of the Downey Planning Commission.

 Ashton is a teacher with the LAUSD. He is also a member of Downey’s Green Task Force.

A-Malek ran for the District 5 city-wide seat in 2008, coming in third place behind Gary DeRemer and winner Luis Marquez.
