Local Focus asked three Bay of Plenty election candidates what they think the biggest issue is in the electorate, and the answers couldn't have been more different.
National candidate and former party leader Todd Muller said the area's growth was a key issue and that it should be supported by central government.
NZ First candidate Tricia Lawrence said the roads were the big issue and the biggest bugbear for locals.
And Labour candidate Angie Warren-Clarke picked two issues, homelessness and methamphetamine.
