Our living conditions can be changed by the type of leaders we choose. Politicians make a lot of promises when campaigning but never fulfill them when they get to the office. We cannot emphasize enough on the importance of choosing credible leaders.
Whether or not a leader plans to address a voter’s issue will determine whether the voter will vote for them or not. Listen to the politicians’ statements and ensure that the issues you need to be addressed are what they plan on addressing.
Find out as much as you can about the candidates vying. Newspapers and online sources can help you know more about the candidates. Campaign speeches and reports, press reports and campaign literature can help you know more about the candidates who are vying. Leaders are tasked with the responsibility of handling sensitive issues that affect the community and knowing what their stand on such issues is will help you know how to address them properly.
Find out other people’s opinion of your preferred candidate. do not just ask them if they are for or against your candidate but also try to find out their reasons for their decision. Find out who are endorsing your candidate. Different organizations have various values, and when they endorse a candidate, it is mostly to their benefit in the long run. By knowing their value, you can judge your candidates values. Find out how your candidates are funding their campaign. your candidate’s conduct in office will be determined by how they got money for their campaign. A good example would have to be Adil Baguirov who had to step down from school board after he changed his voter’s address although there are rumors that he had ties to shell companies.
look out for subtle signs when choosing your candidate. With a keen eye, it is possible to see the faults in our politicians no matter how hard they try to look perfect. Name calling is one of the things you should look out for. Candidates who call opponents names based on things that will not affect their office performance are often seen as incompetent.
The guilty by association card is a stunt that candidates pull against their opponents. A candidate who whines during competition and complains about their lack of delivery being caused by opponents major funds will whine even while in office. A good leader should accept responsibility of their actions. Candidates who pass blame when asked about their actions are not good leader. By promising better things to voters, politicians are able to win people’s heart. Think twice when a politician’s promises are too good to be true. Before making a decision, have enough time to weigh your politician’s pros and cons.
