Don’t vote for party, vote for best candidate

2016-06-01 06:00

AS local government elections approach, many people will want to be on the winning side before and after casting their votes.

However, this can only happen if you choose the right ambassador as leader for your ward to get the best results. It is also important to know that local government elections are all about your municipality. Therefore you must put forward the best candidate or individual, who will be capable of handling all service delivery issues seriously at any given time.

During local elections one should never look at the party, but rather the individual who will look into the interests of the community. Remember the person you vote in now will be your ambassador for the next five years.

Naturally, that person should be familiar with the area and have a sound track record with first-hand knowledge and experience with local service delivery issues.

At the end of the day, it is the individual or the independent candidate you voted in, who will be of assistance to you and not a party.

Consider the above before making your choice, and the best of luck on 3 August.

We have been taught that we need three meals a day in order to make it through the day and while most of us indulge in more than our fair share there is a large portion of South Africans who are living off barely enough to sustain them.
