Rep. James Lankford destined for greatness

Published: April 8, 2013

“Rising star” (ScissorTales, March 30) was spot on. Once in every generation or so someone comes along and serves in public office in a way that exceeds most of our initial expectations. When this happens it not only restores our faith in public servants but in our system of government. When James Lankord first announced his candidacy for a congressional seat, it's likely that most of us didn't completely understand it would be this way. Even so, we inherently knew there was something special about this man. There is!

What stands out above all else is his integrity. When you couple that with his intelligence, honesty and work ethic, it's evident that Lankford is destined for greatness, not just here in Oklahoma but beyond, in some capacity, for the rest of the country. May God bless James Lankford and his family. And may God also bless his service to our state and our nation.
