Papers show deficit under former mayor
By Erica Visser
A councillor has unearthed documents that she says prove that mayor hopeful Peter Black once led a City Council burdened by debt and deficit.
Mr Black served as Labor mayor of Broken Hill from 1980 to 1999 before going on to become a State MP.
Councillor Marion Browne served alongside Mr Black during his reign, for a large part as a "faithful deputy mayor".

Former Broken Hill mayor and State MP Peter Black is expected to announce tomorrow that he will run for mayor on a non-Labor ticket in the September Council elections.

...but won’t commit to election
By Kurtis Eichler
Peter Black has broken his silence over his possible tilt for mayor, saying if he did decide to run it would be on an unendorsed Labor ticket.
Mr Black, who hasn’t attended a Labor branch meeting for years, described talk that he would contest the September election as an independent as “bastardy”.
“I think it’s absolutely absurd that I’d run for Council and not be a member of the Labor Party,” Mr Black told the BDT yesterday.
