I'm not trying to stir anything up.
A number of years ago my dad put together a pamphlet in which he described the qualifications of a good candidate for public office. He based it on some study he had done over a number of years, part of which was for his PhD, and it's based on the character of Christ. That up front.
Over the years Dad has worked with a number of leaders, political and in other areas on the local, state, federal, and international levels and has been well received and respected wherever he went.
The character qualities described in this pamphlet are the qualities any good leader should display and live out in his daily, private and public life and are what we should be looking for in our leaders, political and otherwise.
The pamphlet does not endorse any candidate or political party.
Anyway, here's the pamphlet. It's an easy read, but has a lot of meat in it.
