Why do I say that I’m not special? Some people think it is an unusual thing for a candidate to say. I have three reasons for saying this.
First of all, I’m an ordinary person, but history is full of ordinary people, with flaws and weaknesses, who have accomplished great achievements. We don’t need our citizen legislators to be special.
Secondly, sometime when elected officials think they are special, they don’t see the need to listen to their constituents. I think elected officials always need to listen.
Thirdly, it is ideas that are special. We have some great ideas that have made our country and our state great.
