Rod McNae ranked second with a total of 761 votes.
Michael Scahill came third ( just five votes in it) with 756 ticks beside his name.

These are the four people who will represent Waihi East residents on the Newmont proposed Community Forum that will oversee the Property and Community Improvement Policy put out by the company as a result of community feedback.
Five candidates stood in the election and as there are only four places available Chris Hallums missed out, but gathered 428 votes from his nomination.

Only 1,278 voting papers were returned in the election which equates to 24.3% of eligible voters. Two votes were considered to be informal and 5 blank voting papers were also received.
