I can officially say congratulations to Mayor Wincen Cuy upon his re-election for a second term as Broken Hill City Council Mayor.

He strongly fought off three other contenders, Peter Black, Darriea Turley and John Groenendijk (listed in order of percentage of votes – greatest to least.)

Results of the Mayor Councillor voting from the NSW Electoral Commission can be seen here or by clicking on the following link -


Mayor Cuy first became the Broken Hill Mayor after Council elections in December 2009.  Previously Broken Hill Council had been under administration for a period from 10 January 2007 until the election on 5 December 2009.

The names of the successful other nine Councillors should be available Thursday 13 September 2012 sometime during the day.

Cheers, Jane D


  1. Broken Hill looks like it would be fascinating to visit. Thanks Jane, for letting us all find out more about this unique area. Fran Penfold.

    1. Thanks for the feedback Fran, much appreciated. Yes it really is a fascinating place. I've been posting away for just over 9 months & I've not run out of things to say & there is still a lot more I want to write about. It would be great if you could do a trip there sometime. I think you'd like it.

      Cheers, Jane D
