About the Governor
Governor Sarah Palin made history on Dec. 4, 2006, when she took office. As the 11th governor of Alaska, she is the first woman to hold the office.
Since taking office, her top priorities have been resource development, education and workforce development, public health and safety, and transportation and infrastructure development.
Under her leadership, Alaska invested $5 billion in state savings, overhauled education funding, and implemented the Senior Benefits Program that provides support for low-income older Alaskans. She created Alaska’s Petroleum Systems Integrity Office to provide oversight and maintenance of oil and gas equipment, facilities and infrastructure, and the Climate Change Subcabinet to prepare a climate change strategy for Alaska.
During her first legislative session, Governor Palin’s administration passed two major pieces of legislation - an overhaul of the state’s ethics laws and a competitive process to construct a gas pipeline.
Governor Palin is chair of the Interstate Oil and Gas Compact Commission, a multi-state government agency that promotes the conservation and efficient recovery of domestic oil and natural gas resources while protecting health, safety and the environment. She was recently named chair of the National Governors Association (NGA) Natural Resources Committee, which is charged with pursuing legislation to ensure state needs are considered as federal policy is formulated in the areas of agriculture, energy, environmental protection and natural resource management. Prior to being named to this position, she served as co-chair of this committee.
Prior to her election as governor, Palin served two terms on the Wasilla City Council and two terms as the mayor/manager of Wasilla. During her tenure, she reduced property tax levels while increasing services and made Wasilla a business friendly environment, drawing in new industry.
She has served as chair of the Alaska Conservation Commission, which regulates Alaska’s most valuable non-renewable resources: oil and gas. She was elected by her peers to serve as president of the Alaska Conference of Mayors. In this role, she worked with local, state and federal officials to promote solutions to the needs of Alaska’s communities.
Prior to taking office, Palin served on numerous boards and commissions throughout the state. She was active in her family’s pursuits - including serving as a sports team mom and school volunteer. She also runs marathons.
Palin is a lifetime member of the NRA and enjoys hunting, fishing, Alaska history, and all that Alaska’s great outdoors has to offer.
MSNBC is now reporting that Sarah Palin may in fact -- on the basis of this picture -- be a pirate.
“Sarah Palin may in fact — on the basis of this picture — be a pirate.”
LOL! Don’t give them any ideas. ;)
Her life has been an open book as governor of AK and Mayor.
At the link they also have pictures of her meeting with Congressional visitors who wanted to tour ANWR, etc — so it’s not like she’s never seen a Congressman.
The Democrats try to make her look stupid, when in fact she is very savvy — as demonstrated by her negotiations with the oil companies, pushing through a gas pipeline, etc. She is a lady of many accomplishments, unlike the Dem’s PRESIDENTIAL candidate, the big O ( as in ZERO)
Surrounding herself with a bald guy that had an eagle statue cemented to his head just leads back to the obvious question: why wasn’t this woman vetted?
somebody tip off larry king
she is a pirate!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
this is the clencher its over
Dear God what are you smoking, of course she was vetted. This level of stupidity amazes me.
who gave birth to that eagle
we want dna!!!
Fred was just joking, being sarcastic.
It was a joke.
This explains why the DemocRATS are attacking and trashing her children with so much gusto. We can't have people like that in Washington, D.C.
"LET'S GET THE BABY AGAIN!!!" - Barack Hussein Obama.
Sorry Fred, I didn’t realize you were joking. Im gun shy even around here.
Thai... And Dude... I am so baked.
But I have proof. Look:
Lord help us! Captain Jackie Caribou. We need to get this to the Nat’l Enquirer, ASAP! LOL!
Now you just need to put that pirate hat on Sarah and you are ready to give a “scoop” to the New York Times or CBS.
Fred, like the other poster said, put a pirate hat on her and send it to MSNBC with the story...lmao
She’s truly a great lady!
And the future of the Republican party may rest on those pretty shoulders.
God bless McCain for choosing Sarah.
