– STEPHEN BALI the change of name. Black­town Res­i­dents’ Voice pres­i­dent Indira Devi warned of the costs busi­nesses would have to in­cur.

“This is an out­ra­geous at­tempt by coun­cil­lors for the sole pur­pose, and only pur­pose we be­lieve, of the elec­tion of the next mayor of Black­town,’’ she said.

Black­town’s La­bor Mayor Stephen Bali said hun­dreds of or­gan­i­sa­tions would need to change their name to West Syd­ney un­der the change.

“It’s al­most like (the Mt Druitt doc­u­men­tary) Strug­gle Street, be­cause we have to re­de­fine our po­si­tion and com­mu­nity name,” he said. “We need to fo­cus on build­ing Black­town, not de­rid­ing it.’’
