My Vote is Important

I will vote for politicians who build schools, clinics, bridges and roads, and also give us clean water. I will not vote for politicians who give us small gifts like t-shirts or bags of rice in order to win the election. Small gifts are good for just me. Big gifts are good for everybody.
