"The solution is to make sure that we protect jobs and help to retrain people and continue to provide the economic support to businesses, to keep people employed and to keep our tourism sector coping throughout this period," she said.
NZ First candidate Fletcher Tabuteau agreed jobs and housing were the biggest issues, especially as Rotorua is known for being a tourist town.
"New Zealand First commits to continue to invest in our big employers," he said.
