Selecting the right candidate may not be easy for some people especially for those who really care about positive change and development. Others have the impression that all those who run for public office have the same personal intentions and that whoever they choose will not matter at all.
Whichever the case, most of us still have our list of preferred candidates especially at the local level whom we think will better lead us.
