My answer is A. That is one option we can be sure of.

Remaing all options can be true, but need not be true.

(B) Some persons who are interested in public service do not have an influence on the communityâ€™s values.

The key is you have to find sth MUST BE TRUE from the passage.

B can be true as well as untrue:

+ It's true when some persons who are interested in public service don't participate in local politics ( maybe they just closely observe the political affairs through news,etc...)
+ It's untrue when all people who are interested in public service participate in local politics ---> coz, then since "Everyone who participates in local politics has an influence on the communityâ€™s values." , these "some persons" definitely have influence on the community's values.

Since the passage doesn't indicate anything about that ...B is open to challenge.

Please be in watch-out for indicators and quantitative words in CRs ..coz they're the traps which test makers are very fond of.

A
Everybody in local politics influences community values.
Some selfish opportunists are involved in local politics.
So, some selfish opportunists influence community values.
