Chocolates for Campaign

We bought dozens of chocolates today because my father in law's brother will run for counselor. He will use the chocolate to campaign. I think it is not necessary because they will spend a lot of money in buying chocolates. I think the presence and the integrity of the candidate will win the position. What do you think? Do a counselor need to give something during campaign? Will the chocolate give him the sweet votes?

It's good to know that there are still politicians with a good and sweet heart. As we all know most politicians really use their money to get the votes of the many. And i have never known anyone using chocolates for campaign. Chocolates is better than really buying votes. It's so sweet of your father in law to do this. I think i will ask the husband of my cousin to do the same thing since he will also run for councilor..eheh. I better have my vote on someone whom i know has a good heart and doesn't buy votes by giving money than those dirty politicians who pays large sum of money just to win and then they corrupt when they have a position in the government already. Good luck to your father-in-law.

actually every politician have different ways on how will they cope the interest of the people,so some of them give them money as a help and others give some t-shirts and caps,others key chain,depend upon the politician is,so chocolates is another good way to cope the interest of people.

Although it is a nice gesture, at the end of the day, voters will be weighing out who is the better representative for the position. I am not much into chocolate but would attend anyways if the speaker was a great candidate.

I too agree with you that all this is not necessary. Those who stand up for elections are basically vowing that they would be helping and looking after the needy and the people in their jurisdiction, instead of bribing people with chocolates and what not, they should spend that same money for the welfare of the people. I think that would be more of a help than they giving chocolates which would be forgotten by the end of the day. People also should vote for only those who have seen to their welfare all throughout, not to those who come at their doorstep only during elections..
