Things To Consider When Voting For A Politician.
Our leaders have the power to impact change or whether the state of living will remain the same. Most of the promises politicians make are often unfulfilled when they get to the office. The importance of choosing credible leader cannot be emphasized enough.
The first thing one needs to consider when choosing their leaders is if the leaders plan on addressing the issues they face. Listen to the politicians’ statements and ensure that the issues you need to be addressed are what they plan on addressing.
Do extensive research on all the candidates who are 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. It important to know the candidate’s stand on issues that affect the community as a whole as they will be tasked with the responsibility of handling them.
Find out what other people think of your preferred candidate. Find out why they are for or against your preferred candidate. Find out who are endorsing your candidate. An organization endorsing a candidate always gets some form of benefit in the long run. you can judge your candidate values by knowing their endorsers’ 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. Most politicians have mastered the art of seeming perfect before their voters but if you are keen, you can easily see the faults in the way they carry themselves. Beware of name calling. Beware of candidates who attack their opponents based on characteristics that will not affect their performance in office.
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. Be wary of candidate who keep shifting blame when they are questioned about their actions. Politicians try to win votes by making promises of better things. One should however be wary of promises made by politicians that seem too good to be true. Before making a decision, have enough time to weigh your politician’s pros and cons.
