Ah local elections. 'Tis the season of promises and persuasion, of hoardings and handshakes. Four people have signed up for this months-long job interview with a formidable interview panel: Rotorua's voters. Each voter will decide for themselves which candidate they prefer when it comes time to fill in their ballot. Some candidates are experienced political playmakers, others offer a fresh perspective. All were given a set of questions to give you a sense of their personalities, priorities and plans.
