The Greens have announced support for voting at 16.

Green party co-leader James Shaw said he saw "switched on" young people demanding to be heard by politicians. They were desperately unhappy about the decisions political leaders were making about their futures.

What do you think of the choice of our new deputy mayor?

Nicola Brennan-Tupara Reporter from Taupō Times

Hi neighbours,
In a departure from recent tradition, third term Taupō District Mayor David Trewavas has opted not to make the highest polling councillor his deputy.
Rather than Kathy Guy, he has instead appointed mayoral rival councillor Christine Rankin as his understudy.
REad why he chose Rankin here.
So what do you think? Should the mayor choose the highest polling candidate or go with who he feels is the best choice?

Kelvin Cruickshank Live In Rotorua

Kelvin Cruickshank Show

Hi neighbours, by Popular Demand NZ Medium Kelvin Cruickshank has rescheduled his Rotorua Show!

Passing on messages from people who have died and are in spirit is what Kelvin was put on earth to do.

However, since the incredible success of Sensing Murder there's been such a great demand from people on this side wanting private readings that is just not physically possible for him to do them anymore.

So relax, chill out and enjoy the show, and you never know.. it could be your loved ones who show up. And even if they don't, hopefully the evening will open your eyes to the fact those we've lost are now in the white light, and their spirit lives on.

Date: 2nd December 2019
Location: Rydges Rotorua (272 Fenton Street, Glen home, Rotorua)
Show Time: 7pm - 9:30pm
Ticket price $70.00
