Rotorua's five mayoral candidates faced off at the U3A (University of the Third Age) mayoral forum at the Bridge Club in Neil Hunt Park.

About 180 people turned up to hear each candidate speak for eight minutes before they were asked a question relating to their campaign.

Questions were also taken from the floor before a secret ballot asking those in attendance "if an election was held today, who would you vote for?''

Mrs Chadwick won 74 votes, Mr Kent 47 and Mr Winters 32 votes from those who took part.

Candidates Helen Hindmarsh and Janine Bosma picked up one vote each with 10 people saying they didn't know.
