During election time, an old song keeps popping up in my mind that was recorded by Bing Crosby:

“Accentuate the positive, Eliminate the negative,

Latch on to the affirmative, Don’t mess with Mr. In-between.”

These questions can be a guideline when making a choice. Just vote!

CANDIDATE SELECTION CHECKLIST

Things to look for:

--Will the candidate represent your beliefs and needs?

--Is the candidate qualified for the job?

--Do they have the education and experience to handle the job?

--Are you comfortable with the groups and individuals who support the candidate?

--Do you trust the candidate?

--Is the candidate a leader?

--Will the candidate speak out for the citizens he represents?

 

Beware of candidates who:

--Appeal to your emotions instead of your intelligence.

--Can identify problems, but don’t have realistic solutions.

--Present simple, no sacrifice solutions to complicated problems.

--Avoid talking about taxes, health care, budget, safety or other involved issues.

--Have shady dealings in their past.

--Tell you what they think you want to hear.

--Use negative campaign methods against their competitors.

 

Supporting a candidate:

--Ask questions of and about your candidate.

--Volunteer your time, contact voters, help organize events, get the information out.

--Urge others to support your candidate.

Remember to VOTE for your candidate on Election Day!
