Rotorua locals share their thoughts on the new-look Rotorua Lakes Council.
"I'm happy Steve Chadwick has been re-elected. I'm also delighted for Fisher Wang and excited to grow relationships with the Chinese community through him. It is sad to see Mark Gould go because he hasn't just given years, but decades of service to Rotorua. However, it is great to see Mercia Yates who is another young female voice and a voice for education too."
President of Multicultural Council Dr Margriet Theron
"I hope these new members are for the good of Rotorua and not doing it for themselves.
