The Grey Power Rotorua Association Inc acts as an advocate on behalf of seniors on those matters that affect them to local, national and government policy-making bodies. We also create opportunities for our members to inform themselves and participate in such advocacy. We are not aligned with any political organisation or other lobby group other than the Federation of Grey Power Associations.

At the time of this notice the following candidates have accepted Grey Power Rotorua's invitation to give their responses to five pre-notified questions regarding superannuation, the Rates Rebate Scheme, access to health services and disability access, establishing the office of a Commissioner for Seniors, and their views on what the term "economic recovery" means to them and their Party.
