Broken Hill Local Government Elections 8 September 2012

Local Government

(NOTE: PRELIMINARY RESULTS, NOT INCLUDING PREFERENCES WHICH WILL {AND DID} ALTER RESULTS - SEE POST DATED 14 SEPTEMBER 2012 LINK HERE FOR FINAL RESULTS)

It was a big day in Broken Hill with the Local Government elections being held in the city today.  Stories, interviews and letters to the local paper the ‘Barrier Daily Truth’ have been appearing for months.  The elections are in fact being run in councils across the state of New South Wales.

Unofficially, it appears very likely that the immediate past Mayor Wincen Cuy has been re-elected as the Mayor.  Preferences however are still to be counted.

I know it's premature but I think it's pretty likely congratulations to Mayor Cuy.

There are 9 Councillor positions available plus the Mayor Councillor.

(There is one retiring councillor - Neville GASMIER - who is not re-contesting his position.)

As at very late this evening on the actual day of the election, the candidates are listed below in order of their number of votes today.  Names in bold are existing Councillors.

(NOTE - ALTHOUGH THIS IS THE ORDER AT THIS DATE, THE FINAL RESULTS SAW A DIFFERENT OUTCOME (SEE FINAL RESULTS IN A LATER POST DATED 14 SEPTEMBER, SEE LINK)

As at 11.58pm Saturday 8 September 2012 - 
Darriea TURLEY; Dave GALLAGHER; John GROENENDIJK; Peter BLACK; Ray STEER; Christine ADAMS; Branko LICUL; Alan TUCKER; Josh COWDREY; Marion BROWNE; (Current Deputy Mayor) Robert (Bob) ALGATE; Tom KENNEDY; Sherri KUERSCHNER; Marie WECKER; Jim RICHARDS; Andrew OLESNICKY; Shorty REVILLE; Dove HOWARD; Jim NOLAN; Larry ANGELL; Pim SCHAAIJ; Carol ROWLANDS; Lee BIASIO.

I will publish the final results as soon as they are available.

Note the final results are now available and can be seen here and Mayor Cuy did retain the Mayoral position.

Cheers, Jane D
