Waiariki MP Tamati Coffey says in just 100 days the new Government has "completely changed the game" and given New Zealanders a better life.
But Rotorua MP Todd McClay says Rotorua has already been forgotten and has been snubbed from recent funding announcements for tourism and roading.
Today, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern's Labour and New Zealand First Government has had exactly 100 days in power and despite only giving herself a modest seven out of 10 rating in the job so far, the new leaders have already achieved almost all of what they said they would do by now.
Labour MP Coffey said he believed New Zealand was already in better shape with thousands much better off.
"It comes down to whare, whanau and whakapakari tangata. Houses, families and improving people's lives."
Coffey said the new Government had banned overseas speculators from buying existing homes and stopped the sale of state houses, making housing more affordable and accessible.
"We also passed a law to ensure every rental is warm, dry and healthy, so our friends and whanau stop going home to houses that constantly make them sick.
"Mums and dads with the most important job in the world can now spend more time with baby in those first few crucial months, with our new extended paid parental leave and hundreds of thousands of Kiwi kids and workers got lifted out of poverty, after we boosted the Working for Families benefits and the minimum wage."
Coffey said they had also given peace of mind to New Zealanders by restarting contributions to the nation's Super Fund, helping to keep superannuation affordable into the future.
"We also launched a long overdue review of Aotearoa's mental health system and kept our promise to the Pike River Mine families.
"We've proudly delivered all that and more in just 100 days, imagine what we can do with 1000 days."
He disagreed with McClay that Rotorua had been forgotten, saying locals had already benefited from its 100-day plan.
"Our Families Package is set to lift so many of our lower socio-economic whanau out of poverty, so suburbs like Ford Block, identified as one of the most deprived places in New Zealand, will see a glimmer of hope and not be forgotten about like the previous Government."
But National's McClay, in Opposition for the first time after retaining his Rotorua seat for a fourth term, said seeing Rotorua "forgotten" in funding announcements was "extremely disappointing".
"We were left out of recent tourism and road safety funding announcements despite being one of the standout tourist destinations in the country.
"We've heard nothing from them on upgrades to Te Ngae Rd and they've been surprisingly silent on housing and homelessness in Rotorua."
He accused the new Government of pouring money into "pet projects" in Auckland when it should be paying more attention to Rotorua and the Bay of Plenty region.
Rotorua-based New Zealand First List MP Fletcher Tabuteau said the new Government had focused on what was important to New Zealanders - housing, education, health and jobs.
He said the Families Package included winter energy payments to help older New Zealanders heat their homes and the increase in the Working for Families scheme meant 384,000 families with children would be better off by an average of $75 a week.
The restarting of Super contributions safeguarded people's access to superannuation in the future, Tabuteau said.
"We argued hard in our coalition negotiations for major investment in our regions, in particular forestry and rail infrastructure rebuilds. As the Parliamentary Under Secretary to the Minister for Regional Economic Development Shane Jones, we are driving to create jobs."
He said they had set a goal of planting 1 billion trees to bolster the forestry sector and generate jobs for locals and many Rotorua residents were set to benefit from the minimum wage increase to $16.50 an hour in two months' time.
"An inquiry is also being set up to take action to end homelessness and Housing New Zealand is no longer selling off greatly needed state housing ... New Zealand First is committed to a coalition government that has the people's interests at heart."
Former Waiariki MP and Maori Party leader Te Ururoa Flavell said it was a given the new Government would achieve the targets it set itself.
"Any government is going to set targets they are going to achieve."
Flavell said the new Government had a honeymoon period coming up to Christmas that had been further boosted with Ardern's baby news.
"She has done well by herself but there is still a hell of a lot of work to do."
